Default P-120 fuel line size

What size line is needed going to and coming from the fuel pump? I'm out of town for the next couple of weeks, but want to get it ordered so it will be waiting when I get back. Thanks.

I use tygon from the tank too the pump and 4mm Festo from the pump too the valves and 4mm from the valves too the turbine, never had a problem, to fit the tygon onto the pump, put a piece of 4mm onto the pump niple and cut off at the end then push the tygon over the 4mm pipe and wire on.

Hope that helps

Mike

I do the same as mike with no problems.
You would think by now, pump and/or turbine manufacturers would fit a larger barb fitting on the inlet and a 4mm festo push fit on the outlet.
Likewise the valves should have 4mm festo fittings and not barb fittings designed for a soft pipe.[:@] Rant over!
