I had the same thought. If someone is looking for HELP it might be worth the gamble to bump an old thread, but if you are giving ADVICE to a four year old inquiry, chances are the OP isn't still...

I always ask what state are they in, and would some honest member like to pay them a call. If they were close to me, I happily confront them. In what state is this JasperX supposed to be?

Geoff, I'm sure $10.00 beat the shipping cost from the US. Not only that, you are back in business. Keep an eye on the inside of your fueler to see if the "O" rings deteriorate. I just replaced the...
