Petrol pipe
« on: February 21, 2021, 06:29:25 PM »
Hi all  can anybody point me in the right direction to get decent petrol pipe as I’ve tried  several different types and they all go rockhard and shrink presumably because of modern petrol additives any advice would be appreciated thanks.

Have you tried genuine Yamaha?

I couldn't be absolutely certain, but I'd be surprised if it wasn't still available.

My guess is that it now comes in a fixed length, probably of one metre, and you cut to the length you need.

You can buy decent stuff off ebay. NBR i.e. NITRILE. If you use the clear braded hose type this is nearly always pvc and will yellow and go hard. You can get it in polyethylene which is expensive.

Genuine is still available from Fowlers; pretty sure the part number is 90445090F6 and you get a 1.5 Metre length

Cheers,

If you want to use the absolute best, use marine grade fuel hose. Those come with a price tag about the original or maybe slightly cheaper.
Closest marine supply will have it on the shelf.
