Does it not have a nut shaped tightener that you can give a slight turn which should seal it?

Mine did that. I cured it by tightening the nut on the end. If it still leaks aftwr that the butyl rubber "O" ring needs replacing

Kuranda will not sell a new "O" ring, only a complete scraper assembly. They advise wrapping the scraper in PTFE tape. According to the Refleks forum, (worth joining if you have any oil drip stove) replacement "O" rings can be obtained from agricultural merchants.

As long as you have FAME free fuel, nitrile or butyl will be fine. However, if you have any bio fuel content, Viton is the only reliable option.

When I worked for BT we tested Nitrile rubber with biodiesel and found it unaffected up to a 10% bio content. Currently biodiesel commercially available has a 7% concentration.
