curious: why is my 'replaced' fuel line in BG65 blower 'green'?

I bought the fuel line for my Stihl BG65 blower and works great. Old one had cracks in line. The old one was all black, the one unit piece fit into the hole on top of tank and had the two lines. The 'new' one is identical but all green? Is this a new or better material from Stihl to fight ethonal? Just wondering why it is all green and not black like original. Thanks

You pegged it. Better wearing material. I had a line go out on a tiller and it's replacement was the green line. I can't say it's specifically changed due to ethanol but the old material was having a high failure rate from what I understood at the time.
