Gasahol and other crap fuels resistant flexible fuel hose

Since there are several threads going about fuel delivery issues and gasahol use I thought I would start a new thread about some newer products on the market.

Gates, for one is now offering several flexible ("rubber") fuel hoses resistant to all current fuel blends in use. One line, Gates Barricade, is specifically labeled for use on carburated engines and is sold in convenient 2' lengths in retail packaging in several i.d. sizes:
Barricade® Carburetion Fuel Line Hose

<hr>
Low-Permeation, Premium Hose for Use on Carbureted Engines, PCV and EEC Systems, and for Fuel Return Hose on Fuel Injection Systems


Not for use on the pressure-side of fuel injection systems. Approved for use with leaded and unleaded gasoline, diesel, bio-diesel, E-85, methanol, ethanol, and gasohol fuels. Patented five-layer Greenshield<sup>®</sup> barrier technology keeps fuel out of the environment while delivering peak fuel efficiency.
  • Meets SAE J30R14T1, EPA 40 CFR 1051.110 , and CARB small engine off-road requirements for low permeation (except for kink resistance)
  • Textile spiral layer (two spiral) and thermoplastic barrier layer
  • Oil, heat, ozone and abrasion resistant cover
  • Recommended for carbureted engines in cars, light trucks, off-road vehicles and small engines
  • Temperature rating: -40° F to 257° F (-40° C to 125° C)
Note: Do not submerse in gasoline.
Caution: Do not use on pressure lines on fuel injection systems or cooling system applications.
Use Barricade Fuel Injection (4219BF) hose for Multi-Port Injection systems.

Gates has several more series, including one designed for full immersion like might be use in the tank on the pickup.

Thanks for the info Ax. It should provide a little assurance to know the fuel lines aren't breaking down and causing fuel issues on our old trucks. I need some high pressure hose for my 4.6 DOHC when I line out the fuel tank, pump & engine's final locations.

1952henry is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.1952henry is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Or go find the gadgiteer guy on the Fordbarn. His hose has the fittings to be used with stock setups. NO barbs, hose clamps, etc.

That would be the guy BJMAYBERRY2! (Post 7)

Thanks, that is good to know. Is it a coincidence that there are two threads now about fuel problems? And the fuel pump on my 70 F350 gave out last week? I think it is not coincidental......

I would suggest NOT using only flex line from tank to engine and/or back. I'd use steel line as much as possible. Steel line stays cooler so there is less chance of vapor lock. DON'T use barbed fittings with any of this new line, the sharp barbs will damage the tender internal nitrile lining material that makes the line gasahol resistant. Use bubble fittings with the clamp behind the bubble or just adequate insertion of the plain steel line and manufacturer recommended clamps for low pressure (carb) applications. Don't overtighten the clamps. Threaded flare fittings should be used with high pressure FI systems.
