I'm thinking it's both. It could have been installed better but the design is terrible as the solid fuel pipe is seriously out of alignment with the filler neck from the gas cap. When they draw these things up on a PC, it should be apparent.
For now, I just loosened the hose clamp and slid the rubber hose up onto the pipe further. I'll have to keep my eye on it to make sure I didn't pull it too tight to the point that it pulls off of the filler cap pipe. That would be messy!
