    I need to replace a majority of my fuel lines for my two stroke equipment. Does anybody know the majority or the two different standard sizes of hose that's used for most Newer Husqvarna and Stihl and older (not too old) Echo?

    Figure URL link below would cover it for now, but I want to know the standard size so later I can buy it in bulk.

    Man when these hoses get hard, they get hard as a rock. Geez.

    Thanks for any help.

    The yellow fuel tubing on RedMax equipment, and I am sure others, as shipped from the manufacturer is Tygon.

    The black oem stuff is hard to beat, but I use nothing but yellow tygon and can get many years out of it. THe main reason I like the black OEM is that it fits into gromets and tank inserts like it's supposed too, it seems to be larger OD. Especially with stihl saws and what not.

    My old echo chain saws has the same type of black hose that’s over 10 years old.

    I get mine from a local echo/shindaiwa dealer. he has it in spools. also I get it at a stihl dealer but its much more expencive . with the high heat here in florida the yellow tygone is toast fairly soon
