    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    Hey all This is driving me insane. I have a crack in my fuel filler hose (the 10" rubber hose that leads from the neck to the tank) and I can NOT find a replacement part anywhere. Stealership wants me to spend $400 on the entire assembly, which is bonkers. At this point I'm guessing it's a...
