Default RE: Fuel Barb Soldering Help Please!

I don't use barbs for that very reason. I secure the Tygon gasoline line to the brass tubes with a very small tie-wrap. Put one on every connection point inside and outside the tank.

If you like the barbs, it is possible to solder one on to both ends after it's put through the stopper. The stopper can handle some heat and if you do it quickly it will work. Move the stopper as far away as you can and put a heat sink (like a pair of needle nose pliers with a rubber band) on the brass tube in between the solder point and the stopper.
