Product Questions

When I bought this part number 2 years back it would not fit on the after market brass fuel fittings, not enough stretch. Have you got round this problem? Just tried it again, no go even in this warm weather. Got to fit something better than standard, hoses just let go again.

Hi Nigel, hope you're enjoying retirement! The problem you're having is that the hose fittings are 1/4" barbs(6.35mm) Which is a big ask with 5.5mm hose and due to it being reinforced, it won't yield that much. This isn't a size of hose we currently stock but will look into stocking.

With regards to hoses perishing due to high ethanol levels, try using only super unleaded from Shell and BP. They only have about 5-10% as opposed to 10-20% in most supermarket standard unleaded fuel.
