Fast Flow Fuel Lines
Here's some interesting input on that Fast Flow Fuel line site. Looks like he's been having some troubles.

http://fastflowfuellines.com nor fuellines.biz is going to work anymore.
It sounds like the supplier for this stuff changed the chemical ingredients or manufacturing process, and removed some or all of the stabilizers and other expensive things required for the material to stay flexible and not degrade over time.
Until someone points us at a supplier of genuinely good stuff, stick with high grade automotive, or even better, Marine grade fuel line.
Marine rated fuel line, that is compatible with Ethanol, is preferredFrom the PWCtoday thread;
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)

I personally hate those black lines, in the past I bought from the fuellines.biz place like everyone else, but now I just buy the clear stuff from the local hardwrae store, or the yellow tygon stuff but its pricey. I like to be able to see the fuel and more importantly the oil in the lines.
I have zero knowledge about Canada's marine laws but I know here in the states the black marine grade uscg approved fuel line is required by law. I personally could not care less and have been pulled over to many times to count and never once has anyone looked at my fuel lines or anything uder the seat for that matter.
I don't know the pricing on the black USCG approved lines, but I get the clear stuff for about $1 foot

I purchased a bunch of fuel line from Dave. Mine have been in service for 15 hours and no signs of discoloration. Too early to tell about them getting brittle.
