    wouldnt all new fuel lines be ethanol compatible being pump gas is 10% and new cars can run on E85?

    but then again ive seen fuel lines on boats i work on warp from the ethanol content in pump gas..these are older line the new stuff doesnt seem to have issues.

    I do have a picture of what the ethanol from pump gas will do to battery cables. we had a issue with an outbaord with a very very slight drip and was pooling up in the control tube..for all the wires and fuel line. we had to replace everything including the fuel line. this boat was a 1986 if that makes a difference on hose from then to now.[​IMG]

    that shit is complete junk. My friend ordered that crap and it collapses under finger pressure. My advise, stop skimping on one of the most dangerous part of a car. Unless you want your car to go up in flames, buy good line...

    I run the Fragola pushlite hose on my 03 and 2010 shelby. Both cars run E85 and the hose has held up excellent so far.

    I've also got lots of customers that run the same hose with E85 and have the same great results that I do.

    I ordered a sample of that to see what it was. It was complete crap. Hope yours is better.

    Jared, I am using that stuff from you guys in my engine bay for my Fore rails, and it has been great so far, but I'm concerned with longer runs (like for supply, and return lines), that it will weep fuel smell like some hoses do. Have you noticed this so far with yours? BTW, this is for a regular 93 octane setup, not E85.;-)

    chris, go with areoquip. i built my fuel system for e85 using fragola lines and they are not fun to put together. got halfway through it and switched to areoquips. they went on like butter with the pushlock fittings.

    best fittings IMO are jegs own brand. By far the best quality out of any company.

    It would be interesting to know which one of these companies actually makes them for Jegs, because I'm sure you know Jegs doesn't manufacture anything themselves, just re-labels products to sell under their brand.

    Jegs is made by Earls and Summit is made by Russell. I think jegs are the best though because they have like 6 different colors :)
