Which brand of hose is your recommendation? Need to plumb my fuel and cooling systen.
I was looking at Fragola and Earl's Pro Lite 350.

I like Earls for cost effectiveness or XRP if I want to be fancy.

I did my new setuo using the pro lite 350 stuff. Nice and easy to use but it ain't cheap. However I wasn't impressed with the earls fittings, they just seemed quite squeaky and not smooth tightening them up like the aeroquip stuff.

U.S. name brand stuff only. I have always liked Aeroquip hose and fittings. XRP is also supposed to be top shelf but I have not used much of that.


If the results don't match the theory, change the theory.

I too have used the Fragola and liked it. I haven't been using it long but no trouble so far. I ran -8 feed and return for my EFI with it.

The Fragola fittings aren't as nice as the aeroquip stuff, but they are not bad and still worth the money IMO.

I use parker, braided Teflon, not the chicom crap, price is not that much more and is way better quality.
