Best Fuel Lines

Trying to make a decision on the type of fuel lines to get for the vo system.
Truck is a 2000 7.3. I can get the r9 injection line for about 6.00 a ft. (3/8)
I can get the one wvodesigns suggests for about the same. They suggest using SAE 100R14A Teflon Hose from discount Hydraulic hose.

Don't know much about these hoses. I know the injection line r9 is for bio as well as vo.

Don't know much about the teflon.

Can anyone compare the two?

remember its not just fuel injection but High Pressure Fuel Injection. Im not sure what I have off hand but I think its Goodyear. Its a black hose with a blue lining and its rated for bio and high pressure and Greasecar sells it for cheap.

check out HFI Fluid Power Products Hydraulic Fittings, Metric Adapters, Tube and Hose Assemblies

they had both goodyear and Eaton. both rated the same iirc. i got the Eaton as it was cheaper and the guy said there isnt much difference, if any. the Eaton was about .85 c a foot at the time. 300PSI, Bio safe and threaded/fiber reinforced.

Are you doing HIH, HOH?? I would suggest TIH. Use black iron tee's & fittings & aircraft grade aluminum tubing. The TIH design with aluminum tubing as the fuel line offers the best heat transfer & is the cleanest looking install IMHO. Use SS braided hose for the fuel lines to the heads. This what was suggested to be by Skyskijason when I did my conversion & I am very happy with it.

Alot of guys have gotten their hose & fittings from here:Discount Hydraulic Hose.com
