Default Fuel Line Connector.... T ... Elbow 1/8 inch

I am looking for fuel line connectors for gas engines... Nylon and/or metal ... I need the Elbow connector .... like the ones I have seen that are tubular nylon with a 90 degree bend that can be used to connect and change direction of two fuel lines... Looking for the medium size and the large size.... Several well know vendors do have the T style but would like the slim long tubular style....of Elbow style... If you know of where I can buy the Elbow style .... please let me know.... Thanks...

I made the rounds of 4 auto supply stores and was able to find what I needed.... Most of the vacuum connectors that they had in stock were larger than the 1/8 inch I needed... but I got one at Advance Auto and ordered one at O'Rilleys.... So.... if anyone needs the Elbow or L connector for your fuel lines ... check out auto supply stores.. Paid $2.50 each... no shipping cost....

Much thanks to the original suggestion to check the auto supply stores... Thanks...

Avoid auto parts store T-fittings, some don't work too well. I get mine from ww.zippkits.com .
If you're running 1/8" lines they're too small. Mine I think are 3/32" or 5/32" lines.
