Duct tape and WD-40 fix everything. Duct tape for when it moves and it is not supposed to, and WD-40 for when it is stuck and needs to move.

Does anybody actually think that might work?

I've seen it do amazing things, like lift a cinder block with only a corner of the piece of tape stuck to each side of the block, but I don't see it fixing your issue.

While researching the topic I did find this though..

"Rescue Tape self-fusing silicone tape

There are other self-fusing silicone tapes on the market; this brand just happens to be the one I carry. I’ve used it once to repair a split radiator hose and it worked brilliantly. I’ve heard of it being used to seal high-pressure air lines and even fuel lines as well. It only sticks to itself, thus getting it off to effect a proper repair back home is no trouble. I know of someone who completely mummified a distributor in it for a (successful) deep-water crossing."

I'm not saying you should tape your fuel line.. but other people have = P

I found that stuff too. Stands up to all kinds of fluids, has the strength to support the pressure. Worth a shot I think.

Why not cut the line and install a male-male barbed connector with 2 clamps? The self-fusing silicone tape might work, but I would not recommend it for a permanent solution. If you were stuck 50 miles from home and needed something temporary to get you home, okay, use the tape. In your garage, with all your tools, you should be looking at a more robust repair.
