I sell two variants of fuel line, this variant in 4 different inner diameters. Type A is for NON-INJECTED systems and is rated at 40PSI. Type B is for INJECTED systems and is rated for 300 PSI. For Type A carbureted bikes, select 5/16″ ID for most applications unless you have quick-disconnects installed near the fuel tank. For Type B injected bikes, select 5/16″ ID for applications WITHOUT quick-disconnects. Select Type B, 3/8″ ID for models with quick-disconnects at the fuel pump. Both variants consist of highly flexible tubing that resists stiffness and cracking. Sold by the foot. Measure your fuel line length and tube ID before purchase. For most Ducatis, 5 feet is more than sufficient. To secure the fuel line to fittings, I recommend the Clamptite Tool.
Use with diesel fuel and gasoline with up to 15% ethanol
Temperature Range: -29° to +257° F
Hose: Buna-N (nitrile) rubber
Cover: Blended Buna-N rubber/PVC
Reinforcement: Polyester yarn spiral
Designed for inline connecting of fuel lines, this hose meets SAE 30R7 standards. Hose interior is smooth for unrestricted flow. Can be used indoors and out. Vacuum rating is 24” Hg @ 72° F.
Type A rated for 40 PSI, Type B rated for 300 PSI.
NOTE1: Ducati electronic fuel-injection runs at 44 PSI
NOTE2: ONLY use Type A fuel hose inside the fuel tank to connect the overflow and vent lines and between the fuel pump and the fuel filter. Yes I know, Type A is only rated to 40 PSI. It’s not an issue. Type A resists gasoline on it’s outside carcass far better than the higher PSI rates Type B. How do I know? I’ve been using it for the last 20 years inside Ducati gas tanks.
NOTE3: This hose is not rated as submersible, however, I have been using it inside fuel tanks for 20 years without problems. I still recommend changing out internal fuel lines every five years, but have experienced no problems with this fuel line deteriorating. If you want SAE30R10 submersible hose, you’ll find in in 1 foot lengths for $5.00+ per foot. I don’t use 30R10, don’t stock it, and don’t have a source for it. 30R10 isn’t ethanol-resistant anyway, so what’s the point?
NOTE4: 3/8″ and 1/4″ lines are suitable for all of your venting hose needs. All internal lines are either 5/16″ or 3/8″. Don’t send me an email asking what size you need. Simply put a ruler across the inner diameter of the hole on the lines you are replacing.
