Yea but you gotta remember, back when our cars were made, a lot of people
smoked.... and were all naturally forgetful.  For too many folks it would
have been a real blast changing it....

VW did alot of good things designing our T3's, but when it came to location
and fitment of the fuel pump and it's gas lines; OUCH! What a pain for the
do-it-yourselfer on your backside looking up!

Can you imagine how nice it would be if a engineer installed a fuel pump
with today's technology; In the tank fuel pump (located where the sending
unit is) TOTALLY accessible from above, from inside the trunk! You couldn't
ask for a more convenient location.....not even a need to remove the gas
