I've recently not been able to get fuel up into the primer bulb there then noticed how short the line is. Or is it not supposed to work unless you've filled it up?

There should be two fuel lines. The intake line has a filter on the end and should be long enough so that the filter rests on the bottom of the tank. The return line from the primer bulb only needs to be long enough to return fuel to the tank.

It looks like the black line is the fuel supply while the clear one is the return.

Thanks. Whatever. I'll just replace it with a longer cut of tube if I ever get to it
