The other stuff is probably R6. It will smell, the vapours pass through it. Everyone sells it, yet its useless with modern fuels!

Even gates R6 is going to be pretty useless. Its not what its for. They eve quote the permeability rates.

Looking on the net, Moss sell Gates Barricade for £7 a metre. Would this be fake do you think. (not Moss faking I must add).

I doubt Moss would knowingly sell fake stuff.  That's very cheap for Barricade though......  

The Cohline 2240 was double that.  It doesn't smell of fuel at all.....

I get barricade  direct from the importer. Its significantly more than that. But that said, mines the injection stuff.

I’m confused, which frankly happens with worrying regularity. If I want to replace my fuel hose with stuff that doesn’t make the car smell of petrol, won’t degrade on the outer surface when exposed to the elements and is ethanol resistant I need to buy……. which product???

Am I missing something (probably) but if I buy fuel hose from any modern car main dealer - let’s say Ford cos that’s my nearest one - surely their hose will be of the latest spec and suitable for modern fuels? The only issue I can see is that Focuses and the like use this new-fangled metric system, but I’m sure there will be an equivalent size close enough.

For reference I paid $28 + shipping and taxes for a 25 foot length of gates barrier (non-injection) true 1/4" (not 6mm!) hose.

Gates Barricade.

You wouldn't be able to get fuel hose from a main dealer, at least not by the meter. They would just ask what hose on what car with what VIN and order accordingly.

I have also fitted choline 2240 based on a recommendations by Nigel Clark from Practical Classics . He used it on his Scimitar as being  glass fibre - fires are even more catastrophic.

I do know one good source for fuel hose.  It's R10 and it has been proved by a few of us in another club.  The guy also sells power steering hoses to a number of big names and has come across fuel hose issues with his own cars.


Ex Stag TV8, Dolly Sprint and Spitfire 1500 owned.

Now with the following:
1985 Ford Escort RS Turbo Series 1 1.8
2003 RenaultSport Clio 172 Cup(ish)
