    ...ask any surveyor in your local area what is the hose they prefer to see....simple really...

    I can recommend hoses we use here, but that will be useless unless you can get them, they are local made and USA made, but I am sure the local fella will be the best bet.

    Go to and look at their collection of fuel lines and accessories. They have (almost) everything for inboard diesel installations.

    Basically asked the same question not even a couple of weeks ago,
    have not done mine yet but I am leading towards stainless to the primary fuel filter than just flexible rubber from there, like my problem I don't want to worry about those lines under the floor were there hard to get too.
    I have not look into fully at the braided stainless hose yet, need to contact the manufacturer and see how it goes in a salt water hard environment.
