Diesel Fuel line
« on: September 27, 2017, 03:27:22 PM »
Guys,
Where can I get some fuel line for a 2.5 diesel? It needs to be soft/flexible for the shut off.

Thanks
Mike

Texas Timer says his fuel line will work with diesel. See:http://www.texastimers.com
Go to fuel line.

If you just needed fuel line I would say call up the local lawn mower and chainsaw service place and ask what sizes they stock.  But tygon isn't very soft, and the off brands are stiffer.

That's the problem.  The usual soft tubing melts with diesel fuel.  Hence the problem with pinching shutoffs.
