Fair enough.

My paramotor had a piece of junk hose from the fuel tank to the motor -- it had swelled up enough that even a hose clamp wasn't keeping it attached to the tank. After a lot of searching for the "best" replacement, I found the Tygon LP1100 -- the tech specs were great, and it was yellow/translucent.

Unfortunately, the largest diameter is 1/4" ID.. and that seems to be the issue.. finding an ethanol-safe hose in a large diameter.

Not much value as info for the tube being discussed though since it is about 2 inches in diam.
