Angry Oil Bypass nightmare

So i bought pieces from amsoil to make my oil bypass kit. The only peice i didn't buy was the hose (reason being its expensive as **** from them). That being said i put it together, went to Lowes and bought 1/4 ID and 1/2 OD (same as amsoil size) hose. The hose was "fuel line" hose... sturdy rubber, and i figured it would hold up to the corrosion and pressure. WRONG today the truck literally blew a hole in the hose near the fitting. shut it down when pressure dropped, and got it towed... this is the 2nd time i have had the truck towed in a week for oil being spewed out. can anyone recommend a GOOD hose that will hold up to the pressure.. before i throw this **** away or ebay it minus the hoses.

Looking for help here, already called ford and told them order the OEM caps to return the truck to stock. i've spent prolly $110 on oil... all to be spilt out onto pavement.

1st time was my fault.. used a hose clamp thinking it could hold pressure, 2nd time the hose literally burst in middle... no ryhme or reason here.

umm dont blame the hose as it was not rated for that when you put pressure to fuel line it will break if it is not rated hose. so use the correct hose and it will all work out just fine can't blame anyone but yourself for that one plus fuel is not hot when passed through the hose and heat will deteriorate the line as well

i'm not saying i don't spend money on the truck, because i do. the only downside was no one would tell me fuel line wouldn't hold up.. everyone i asked said oil line will work... i blame them, and i am ordering the amsoil hoses.. very expensive, but they wont sell a product to me that isnt rated at it...
