Does anyone know where i can get a decent quality fuel hose to go from the filter in the engine bay to the regulator. the black hose thats about 6 inches long ;)

my rubber one is perishing and i cant seem to find a decent replacement. I contacted SFS and they said silicone is no use.

Any ideas?

Go to a local motor factor mate, they will sell high pressure fuel injector hose by the metre and it's very inexpensive and will last years.... A metre is normally about 6-8 pounds ;)

Internal bore size on the fuel hoses is 8mm mate, and wall thickness should be around 3mm with a cotton braid running through the middle of the rubber. ;) this would cover the regulator, filter tail hoses etc as they are all the same.
