    Anyone know the fuel line size for a Robin Subaru EHO35?

    I'm planning on replacing mine with Tygon brand type when I put an aux. tank on.

    I did a search and the specific size wasn't mentioned. I'm gonna order mine through ebay so I can't do a check to fit type thing.

    #1 Why would you want to switch your Subaru for an inferior engine?

    #2 Why not just get a larger fuel tank from Staton-Inc?

    #3 just take your old fuel lines into any ACE hardware Store, and they will fix you up. The parts guy will even have the right filter for the long one...you do know there is a long one abd a short one? Right? And, which one goes under the fuel on the bottom? The long one gets the filter.

    I don't think he is replacing the engine. Just the tank for a larger one.

    Tygon is the name of a company that manufactures rubber hose, not just a particular rubber formula. I found that out the hard way. I bought about 4 feet of Tygon hose from a local surplus warehouse and it turned to jello after a few months of fuel line duty on my goped. Make darned skippy sure it is in fact a fuel line not just the Tygon name.

    Here's a wiki on it.
    Look at Tygon Fuel and Lubricant Tubing F-4040-A and Tygon LP1000 for use as a fuel line.

    Thanks for the replies. Turns out that 3/16 ID fuel line fits pretty good.
