    Did you use Advanced Search?

    Did you look in the Polaris How To & FAQs and Polaris Tech Tips and Info sections?

    There is also info beyond the forum itself

    Max fuel pressure in the non-fuel injected systems is about 6PSI, so any fuel line can handle the pressure.

    For safety, I suggest you use Marine rated fuel line. Also make sure it is rated for Ethanol blended gasoline.

    Did you click the link in my signature?

    Polaris Domestic (red) engine

    Where can I get replacement fuel and oil hose?
    Depending on the model you have you will need 15 feet, maybe 20 feet at the most, of fuel line.

    Marine rated fuel line, that is compatible with Ethanol, is preferred
    USCG TYPE B1 SAE J1527 NMMA TYPE ACCEPTED (ISO 7840)
    J1527 A1 is also acceptable, and the A1 hose has a fire resistant outer coating
    SAE J1527 Type B2 (and A2) is for fuel tank vent hoses only, do not use B2/A2 for fuel lines unless it is also B1/A1 rated.
    From what I can tell, the current version of these marine fuel hose ratings is for up to E10 (Gasoline with up to 10% Ethanol blend)

    Be sure the hose you use for the pulse line is stiff enough not to collapse under suction
    Also applies to the fuel lines from tank to fuel pump, which are also under suction

    If you replace all the lines in the system, it can add up quick in distance.

    In-tank line-reserve-1.5 ft
    In-tank line-main-1/1/4 ft
    From top of tank-main to water seperator-3ft
    From top of tank to return line-3 ft
    Vent from top of tank-3 ft
    water seperator to fuel filter-1ft
    selector to water seperator-1ft
    Pulse line -1 ft or under
    outlets to carbs -3 ft
    in between carbs-1ft

    These are all approximations- I may have missed one.

    There approx 20 feet right there so.
