This was such a common failure on the UrS cars that the cars were recalled
in both Canada and the U.S. to have the lines replaced.

Long story short - I was troubleshooting an ongoing hard start condition (
with smell of fuel outside car)...discovered that the fuel pump had been
replaced with the newer style pump...further troubleshooting under the hood
found that one for the crimps on the flex line by the fuel filter was
leaking gasoline near the turbo...YIKES
Cut off the flex line which left the main line section with its flare, as
well as the section near the passenger fender.
Replaced the section with 5/16 inch fuel injection grade rubber fuel line
and fuel injection hose clamps ( pulled the hose over the flare on the lines
and put the hose clamps there)
So far it seems ok
Has anyone else had this happen and followed a different repair approach?
Yes, ideally I would have loved to replace the line with something factory
grade...but there doesnt seem to be alot of alternatives.
