Simon, thanks for posting the Vaporguard link. I needed some fuel line and fittings for my carbureted system that I will possibly upgrade to EFI, so I bought some Vaporguard fittings, clamps and pliers.

Vaporguard is AN, as is push lock. AN describes the mating of the fitting and not the hose.

Vaporguard hose assembles easily. I like the clean OEM look and black fittings. Crimp rings provide reliable connections.

i get the lengths right on mine then take them to a local hydraulic hose shop. They just do it by hand but they are good at it and get the stuff fully seated.

Hey Don

I was looking a the Vaporguard hose and saw there is a single crimp and a dual crimp clamp. Do you know why there are those 2 options?
Sorry no I don’t. I have used both.
