    Where can I get good fuel line ? I'm tired of the black rubber ones that are marked fuel line rated but after a period of time they always seem to leak. Are there ones made just for diesel fuel,if so where can I get them?

    costly ...

    My brother maintains a fleet of Macks..he uses silicone hose on all the trucks for water and radiator hoses,I'm fairly sure the fuel lines he uses are either silicone, or some kind of diesel rated neoprene hose thats about 5 bucks a foot!...:eek1:

    I've used fuel injection hose on my 6.2 and it seems to be holding up quite well..I agree the "fuel line" sold at parts stores is cheap crap lately--I used to trust it for tranny coolers,but you cant any more..its too cheesy..the fuel injection rated hose is better quality,but is also 3-5 bucks per foot!..

    I've heard Tygon is pretty tough too,but costs the same..I'd try a "big rig" truck supply house,and see what they use and sell...:crazy:
