Can regular fuel line be used for diesel?

Gotta know, I have a messed up fuel line and its not in stock, but need the truck running.

It is the line going from the tank to HFCM (not the HCFM to tank/return line), I would just replace the 8" rubber section, not the whole metal thing.


Thanks!

most fuel line that you get from napa or oreillys is diesel rated. All you have to do is ask them to make sure.

or is this something that you already have at home. I'm sure it would work as a patch.

Is this an emergency?


Hell yes it will work. I'll use a slurpee straw if needed!

Otherwise, if it is a "fuel line" it should be diesel rated as stated above. Even transmission oil lines can be used on the suction side.

Great!

Emergency as in, who knows how long the Special order would take, and probably rediculous price. Its rubber already, I just have to flare the metal line to ensure it stays in place. The hose is kinked in 2 spots, no idea how or why, but it is and thats what was causing my starvation problem.

I'll grab some line tomorrow.
