You want to use Tygon or Viton on gas and silicon style on glow.

Don't mix and match

I haven't ever had a problem with Tygon and glow fuel but glow fuel type line turns into slime in a hart beat with gas. It softens quickly. When I worked in a small engine repair shop and people relined there gas tanks with the glow fuel line it came out looking like bubble gum.

Yes Tygon will work with glow fuel but silicone fuel line will not work with gas . Its best to keep them seperate .
