Best way to reduce fuel line

Since I put the correct fuel pickup/sender on, I noticed the inlet requires an 8mm hose. I had 3/8 hose going to my previous sender (I don't have stock fuel lines). What is the best way to reduce the 3/8 ID hose to the 8mm "neck" on the sender/pickup? Would a barbed adapter do the job securely? 90* elbow would be ideal since I'll need to go from the left side of the tank, up and over to the right side of the chassis.

Thanks!

Would a hose clamp work? If you choose that route, use two quality ones the right size.

X2 on the hose clamp. The fewer connections as possible reduces leakage potentiometer.

Thanks all...I'll give a couple hose clamps a whirl. The 3/8 isn't too much bigger. I agree on keeping it simple

I like the bmw style/Fuel injection hose clamps for these jobs.. They tend to hold better
