Dang blasted ground hog -- help needed!

So I have been parking in the shade ever summer for several years at my work.  This year for some reason the local ground hogs like to hand out under my car (4ktq).  I didn't think anything of it.  Everybody had to find a way to stay cool right?

Well all that changed 30 minutes ago.  So I look out after finishing lunch and notice a dark spot near my car.  I walk out there.  Even before I am 40 feet from the car I smell gas.  The blasted critter has chewed through the gas line where it comes out of the tank.  The 18 gallon tank filled with premium gas!  I know it was them because the vacuum lines to the rear diff lock have also been molested.

Anyone have ideas on what size hose that is?  My wife is coming with my syphon to get as much gas out as I can before it leaks out.  I would rather have the hose in hand before I crack it open.

I only looked under there for a second or two.  It is the line that is maybe 4-5 inches long and goes from the bottom of the drivers side of the tank to a little white plastic thing that may be a prefilter or something.

Thanks in advance for the help
