Fuel hose sizes?
« on: March 23, 2010, 06:44:38 AM »

Just a quick question.....

I'm putting new rubber fuel hoses on my fuel supply and return lines (before the fuel pump).  The old lines were both 5/16" hose (they were also not factory original).  That size seemed to fit the return just fine, but the 5/16" hose didn't seem to fit the supply very well.  I REALLY had to mash it to slide over the line.

Is my car telling me something Should I be using the next-larger size hose (3/8" ?) for the supply or is 5/16" hose okay?
