Alternative fuel hose? Fuel pipe research

Discussion in 'Mech Tech' started by Mucka, Jun 8, 2014.

  1. anyone who sells Gates.....speciafically SAE 30R9 /MPI Hose
     
  2. Gates also do a fuel line called Barricade with is compatible with 85% Ethanol, Gasohol, Bio Diesel etc. no good for FI though
     
  3. You can actually remove all the ethanol from petrol by adding water (yes water!)...ethanol bonds to the water molecules, and, as it's heavier than petrol, it sinks to the bottom...drain it off and you're left with E free Petrol....don't take my word for it....google
     
  4. That's easier said than done ..I spent about 2 hours searching
     
  5. Hi,

    I've edited my original post (couldn't delete) as I realised I had put misleading information in there, I've ordered that much stuff for the van over the past few months (i'm doing a megasquirt conversion and converting from auto to manual) so I'd got confused!

    THIS is the fuel hose I've ordered and the photo below is this hose, NOT the link to the ebay item i'd originally posted.

    @lhu1281 I hope this clears things up a little, sorry for the confusion. (next time I'll check my facts before posting and wasting peoples time)

    Cheers, Deano

    BTW - @vanorak is spot-on with Autohose, top guys and a great range, their "shop" is like alladins cave, I'd forgotten about those guys but I've had loads off them in the past, they do great quality interior vinyls/upholstery too :)

    edit. See my above post the stuff I originally linked to was wrong, this is what I ordered in the above photo http://www.advancedfluidsolutions.c...e-rubber-fuel-injection-hose-sae-r9-628-p.asp

    Neither supplied barricade hose .....but I have found a company that supplies 1/4 and 5/16 Gates barricade hose
     
  10. I can only find suppliers in the US. IS there someone in the UK?
     
  11. I used some of the smaller diameter 5.5mm for my stock set up a couple of months ago. It's the same stuff that VW Aircooled Works supplied to a mate with one of their kits. I later found it cheaper through Car Builder Solutions sold as 6mm ID. Hope this is of use.
     
  12. wow. OK I will for sure, thanks for the tip
     
  13. well i finally have the Gates Barricade stuff 5/16 ...not the cheapest and i had to get it from the states but didnt take long and didnt get stung for import duty
     
    paradox and chewabledrapery like this.
