I've done that, but over time the vinyl tubing looked gross so I just bought a new (used) liquid dip tube.

The ones where I took out the gas tube had weird brown plastic gas dip tubes that creeped me out.  They're somewhere in my post history but I'm lazy and technically working right now.

The plastic gas in tubes are real easy to cut.

Here's a link to one of the older threads about the plastic gas-in tube.  I ditched them because they creeped me out.

I'd just put it on when I needed it occasionally.

And I left it for years until it grossed me out.  Two different approaches!
