Does anyone know whether you can use those fancy Samco hoses in fuel systems?

I have been reworking the fuel filler pipe on my car in solid s/s and wondered whether I could use one of their straight couplings to attach the new pipe to the tank. I tried mailing Samco but they never answered. Any ideas?

im pretty sure they are only suitable for coolant,induction, and breather applications,im sure someone will prove me wrong though

Pretty sure petrol and silicon are a no no. I had something similar but changed them for nitrile rubber just to be safe ;)

Yes you are both correct.Samco hoses are not Petrol resistant.Myles,you can get the right hose from Bailey Motorsport in Royston Herts.Its only available in black tho.
