Re: Smoke through the hose
i've fixed MANY hoses with duct tape/electrical tape lol. It works wonders. But USUALLY, air leaks are so small that when you drawing in, you won't notice a difference. I mean, compare the inner volume of the hose as opposed to the size of the leak... usually the leak is negligable.
if it works, don't fix it lol. if it's REALLY REALLY bad, buy a new one.
