Default Diesel Plumbing??

Ok guys I'm off to get started on my first diesel. What type of fuel lines will work with diesel fuel? This is a DDD Cox conversion.

Take care,
Tim Wiltse

Tygon or Neoprene will work. Anything that works for gas will work, your local shop will have it.

Your local hardware probably has tygon tubing for gasoline in the small size you need.

DUBRO DUBRO DUBRO

Automotive neoprene is somewhat stiff for fuel tank use. DUBRO neoprene (especially older packets are good and flexible).

Don't forget the plumbing inside the tank if you use a plastic tank. Also the fueler. If you use the Pylon type, be sure to get a diesel one.

That's the one with the black bulb for gasoline; works fine. Even better for your use is a Norvel all plastic syringe.
