    Genesis I fuel system.

    Hi everyone. It'll be a few months yet before the ice melts out of the lake and the water warms up here in Nova Scotia. In the meantime I plan to go through the fuel system on my Genesis I. The previous owner put worm screw clamps and black rubber hose on. I'm not sure if the hose is marine grade so I'm going to replace it. I managed to source out the proper clamps but I need some advice on the line. I called my local marine dealer and they want to sell me clear hose for $4 a foot. It is rated for 60 psi so that's OK but does clear hose sound like marine grade? It sure should be for that price, or inlaid with gold. I don't mind paying if it's what I need.

    Unfortunately none of the marine or watercraft dealers I've tried nearby have any of the proper fuel line (or even know what I'm talking about for that matter). I guess I'll have to order some. Does anybody have a source in Eastern Canada?

    Have you asked at a marine repair shop that works on older inboard gasoline boats? These would use the same type of marine A1 grade fuel hose as the watercraft.

    Ficht fuel pump pressure barely reaches 30 PSI at stall so very high pressure 'fuel injection' rated fuel hose is not necessary.

    Try calling a few hose manufacturers or distributors;

    I am sure there are marine fuel hose suppliers somewhere near you, just need to figure out who they are. Or order online and have it shipped.

    The problem is, here in Nova Scotia, it's hard to find anything slightly out of the ordinary. I'm sure if there is another Bluenoser on here he/she will agree. I tried a couple more places today. No joy. There are marine service places around but apparently they are not using the correct hose. I can order it online if I have to but I would rather find something in Quebec or Ontario than go through the hassle of bringing it across the border from the US. Especially now that our dollar is worthless.
