Just like raceme said, the fuel tubing allows pressure from inside the exhaust pipe to enter into the fuel tank.

Then the fuel can be pushed into the carb easier.

If it didn't pressurize the fuel tank, you wouldn't get as good as performance because you would only be using gravity to feed the fuel into the carb.

i drove wit the pressure line off before. it still runs but you cant stop for to long right when you stop the fuel stops and the engine cant idle. so you have to keep the throttle open.
