    Clear Blue Fuel Line ?

    Is there any reason to not use this line to replace gret fuel line in a 2001 Seadoo GTS ?

    Thanks

    I rub the same fuel line on all my skis, but it's cheaper through Jegs @ $5.99/10 feet with free shipping

    Oh I can think of a few reasons not to use it, but is sure is popular.

    I prefer a fuel line that can handle direct flame exposure for at least 5 minutes
    I prefer a fuel line that has high abrasion resistance
    I prefer a fuel line with a SAE number indicating it is of the highest quality



    Keep in mind while the USCG does not require ANY of this stuff on a PWC, I sleep better at night knowing my liability insurance won't go up if there is an incident.

    I use this:

    oh yeah..it's available for about $2.50 a foot in a 50 foot roll...west charges lots for this stuff but it will be the last time you replace the fuel line in your pwc.

    you're always welcome at my place then.....

    Any SAE rated marine grade hose is good. Beware however some hose is much larger then stock, and you run into some problems ( I had a helluva time recently using shields hose on a 951 carb job. Barley enough room to get them on with the otiker clams.

    You need to use silicon spray and perhaps a drift to stretch the hose just a tiny bit to help it get on some tougher spots.

    Never a comeback in 5 years + of using the "good stuff" and no regrets either.

    All you need to do is cut that hse and look at the cross section and you'll know why I swear by it.


    Clear hose does have it's place..but not on a fuel system

    Give Tygon tubing a try it is transparent so you can see the fuel flowing. At $1.29/ft it won't hurt your wallet either. They have all kinds of good stuff too. See link to U.S. Plastics
