    Fuel filler pipe series 2 Fulvia Sport

    I have just refurbished the fuel tank using Frost tank cleaning and lining system which has worked well.

    On replacing the fuel filler pipe I have noticed that the plastic nut on the fuel filler pipe is not all it should be and whilst it tightens just about ok it obviously has a damaged thread and needs replacing. I understand that the better engineered series 1 had a brass nut rather than a nylon one fitted to the series 2 so I'm looking for a series 1 replacement. Can anyone advise whether the series 1 fuel filler pipe is a direct replacement for the series 2 pipe ie does the nut fit a series 2 tank and does anyone have one for sale?

    I misplaced my series 1 part and used a series 2 pipe on my series 1 car and it fits fine.
    Found the original after and have it in reserve for when the nylon one inevitably fails.

    That's useful info and good news - so does anyone have a series 1 fuel filler pipe available complete with nut from a coupe or sport (i presume I can cut and shut the pipe and just put the nut on the sport pipe.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but the filler cap for a series 1 is different. The series 1 cap has an outer bajonet.
    Once I've lost the cap of my series one and they are very hard to find.
    However you still can buy it new for about 150 Euro i believe.
