As for reusable fittings and hose I use Fragola.


Brown & Miller crimped for me too, expensive but I think the quality justifies the extra expense.


How much does it cost to get setup to do the crimped hose fittings?

IF you do a certain volume BMRS will set you up with a crimper and dies or you can buy one if you can justify it. BMRS's North Carolina location is only one day shipping away from me so I plan out the total lengths of hose sizes and fittings needed, order, when received I cut the hoses to length & install the ends, mark the fitting orientation and send them back to BMRS to be crimped, they send them back to me crimped and ready for installation.

Fragola does a portable unit with hand pump for ~$3400. Others do the same machine with an electric pump. Don't know what they run. Then you need the tooling. And the hose. And the fittings.

A normal person would need to be making hoses for people to justify that investment.

Drive out to PRI next month with your checkbook. That would be the place to get hooked up.

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

I have an assortment of Fragola, Aeroquip, Earls, Jegs, summit, and even some cheap ebay fittings. Usually use Jegs housebrand braided stainless hose. Been putting them together w/ basic wrenches and a bench vise for years. Some of these fittings I'm still using are 20 years old. Even the cheap ones are all at least 5 years old.
I've had one length of hose fail...started leaking through the braid and halfway down the length of hose. That was after many years of service w/ pump gas.

Teflon, PTFE, lined hose should never leak with any fuel, were your hoses that type or neoprene lined? shruggy

Just normal braided hose, not PTFE lined.

I had the same thing happen years ago, I switch to the PTFE lined and no leaks since up

Pump gas has its way of eventually leaking out any non teflon lined line these days. My Camaro has had braided lines on it for 24 years, only issue it has ever had was the return line from the regulator back to the tank while running pump gas. The car sits most all of the time. I just eliminated the entire return system on the car and no issues with leaking anything else.

Al, oddly enough it was also the return line on my car that started leaking. I think that was probably 8 years ago. Replaced that section of hose and all has been good since.

Chip I think it was just the fumes off of pump swill that caused mine to go away. The supply side line is still the same one that was installed 24 years ago.
