put the end of the hose in a cup of hot water to soften it a bit.

hmm tried the hot water, no luck.

Would softer, more plyable hoses be safe to use for fuel vapours?

Try a hairdyer if you heat it enough it will go over trust me,
or just use some rubber fuel hose that fits over both ends snugly you could even hose clamp the rubber hose on.

Thanks for all your help guys, especially the excellent illustration :-)

I finally got round to finishing the job, I ended up using fuel hose and clamps, it made the job 100% easier.

I connected the hose running from the solenoid to the top inlet and the hose running from the white and black valve thingy to the bottom inlet. Anyone know if this was the correct way to do it?

Thanks again!

Definitely the charcoal canister. It sits just under and behind the pass side indicator and it's basically a pollution control device (so you don't really need it) however, i'm unsure what effect driving with it off may have on a/f ratio, fuel economy etc.

i'm sure they're pretty cheap to replace, good luck.
