Ron,

If you are looking to replace the soft line only, just go to a Mercedes dealer and ask for their version. It is the correct diameter and much better quality. You can buy it off the roll and cut it to fit.

Or buy it online if you can't get to a MB dealer.

I bought an entire spill rail over the counter from Keith Gott in the UK. It didn't fit, the hoses were all too short. I bought new hose from the MB dealer and all is now well.

I bought 1/8 silicone hose from McMaster. You just pull off the old and slide on the new after cutting to length. The silicone is relatively cheap and resists heat fuel ozone, all that bad stuff.

Have always used Mercedes...

This is an interesting suggestion because I was buying expensive viton lined hose for use with veg, but I think silicone hose is equally veg resistant. Will do some more research.
Thanks for the suggestion, Bill.

Doesn't need to be anything special. I've gotten the fuel line at Napa, 3.2mm (1/8") inner-diameter and like 2' was <$3, and just cut each piece to fit.

McMaster Carr has the Viton line priced per foot - you only need about 18" at most.

I contacted the people that make those silicone intake hoses and asked if they could make a fuel fill hose. They said silicone wouldn't hold up to B100 or other bio.

If you get the semi-clear you can tell when and if it gets jacked up. Alternately, you could instead get the clear nylon hose. It is far and away much stiffer, but it is far more see-thru than the silicone. You'd have to remove the spillway and heat the wee little ends with a heat gun and all that shyte. It would be a pretty neato look tho...and stand up to your bio diesel madness.

Way too over the top would be crimped-on braided stainless with teflon lining, but it would look trick as hell.
