I have a Featherlite Weedeater. I need to know how far into the fuel tank does the fuel line from the primer bulb need to go? Thanks

The main one (the one with filter)should be long enough to reach other end of tank.The other line is just a return line,and it just reaches about 1" into the tank.

Try re-routing the fuel lines first.Sounds like how they do when you have the lines reversed.Then if still wont do right,go into carb.Clean good and replace the diaphragm.

also check the metal fuel filter screen in the carb.

should be able to see thru it and blow thru it easily
