The original hoses were "designed" to leak. They are non-barrier hoses. They allow the tiny molecules to escape through the hose. Not the fittings, the actual rubber hose. I have never understood (nor read) why Porsche did this... but they did. And therefore we pay... once per year, maybe once every two years, but either way, they need a recharge because of the hoses.
