    Fuel Hose for B100

    I have been using some of this hose https://ph.parker.com/au/en/fuel-lin...ries-397/39705 for some time now, like a year or 2 with very good results.
    And the price is quite low compared to stuff on evelbay, that is supposed to be suitable for B100.

    The spec sheet states "The hose is qualified with permanent crimp couplings for a safe and secure connection."
    How are you connecting it to the metal fuel pipes?

    Push it on and install a clamp, either spring or screw, just like any other fuel hose.
    The big problem is finding a place that will sell in cut lengths and not a complete 250 foot roll.

    The hose is qualified with permanent crimp couplings.... I think they mean it is suitable for permanent crimps.

    OK, I thought that was the requirement, rather than suitability for them.

    A cheapish and fairly hardy bio proof hose is poly-urethane . From hydraulic hose-doctor places e.g. Enzed.
    Available in a blue-ish clear , handy for tracking air bubbles from leaks.
    Soften ends with hot air or water as just before clamping on hose barbs to get a tight seal ; it is not that soft but is flexible enough to form bends

    I have been using 8mm (5/16") fuel line hose from Repco, SKU:A9440856 at about $25/meter.
    Gates 27340 , 4219BF Barricade fuel injection hose. SAEJ30R14. Simple to install on 8mm tube using standard hose clamps.
    Several years of of service with B100 and no problems.
