Is it true that the fuel line over the top of the rear plug hole also serves as the seal, and has to be correctly manouevred into place when you put the tank back on to ensure the seal is sorted?

Not heard this one, I just let the fuel lines take a natural line and let them sit were they want to without forcing them in to any funny shapes.

Having just lifted the tank to get to the rear coil (failed and replaced under warranty by the way) I found that it is very easy to get one of the pipes caught between the tank and the head and it gets squashed. Just prodding the pipes in at the sides before fastening the seat/tank down will push them into the correct position.
