Goodyear .375 fuel hose

I purchased a 25' roll of Goodyear fuel hose for my EZ-EFI conversion and painted on the hose is 50 psi, but on the label on top of the spool there is a warning not to use on pressure lines for fuel injected engines. Since the working pressure for this system is 43 psi, does this warning not apply to my specific application?

Wink Re: Goodyear .375 fuel hose

In general, the working pressure of a hose should be no more than 25% of the rated pressure or @ 4:1 safety factor for most applications.
This is specially important for automotive applications - because of the excessive heat under the hood areas.
So that hose would have a working PSI of @12~13psi if it was used accourding to accepted standards.

I would purchase hose specifically designed for the higher Fuel Injection system pressures.

Thank you, your explanation will lead me to return this hose and get the specific F.I. hose. Much appreciated.

Re: Goodyear .375 fuel hose

Remember, the 43 pounds is AFTER the regulator so you're getting higher pressure supplied to it. Get the Aeroquip teflon lined hose that Summit carries. Practically everything else leeches fuel smell through the hose.
