Default 30% Heli Fuel?

I just bought some 30% heli fuel Morgan , to run in my Satio .91 ,the motor runs fine , but it seems to be not good for my fuel line ,ie the line in the gallon tank got soft and a blown out hole developed. I use the blue fuel line bought from the local hobby shop. Should i be using some other line. :spinnyeye Thank's TomBob

Default 30% Heli Fuel?

I have seen several hobby shops carry "blue" fuel line that is specifically for gasoline not glow fuel. It will get soft and disintigrate rather quickly when exposed to glow fuel. Make sure the fuel line you use is silicone and you should be OK. I run the 30% heli mix with silicone fuel line and it works just fine.
