Speedflows’s Guide to selecting the right hose for the right application:

Due to the introduction of new blends of unleaded fuels (ULP), Ethanol blends and fuel additives from all fuel manufacturers in recent years, it has become increasingly difficult to assure the compatibility of these fuels with the current hose constructions.

The best hose option for use with petrol (gasoline) in the Speedflow range is the 200 Series Teflon® hose which can withstand all current additives used in the manufacture of ULP and Ethanol Blended fuels. 200 Series -6, -8 and -10 sizes are also manufactured with a carbon lining to prevent static build up and discharge from fast moving liquids.

The construction of the -6 and -8 100 Series Hose has been modified to be more compatible with unleaded fuels, but due to the unpublished additives used by fuel companies, Speedflow cannot guarantee the life of this hose with Unleaded and Ethanol Blends.

Speedflow’s Guide to Uses of the 100 & 120 Series Hoses:

Uses: Fuel (conditions apply), Coolant & Oil Pressure Systems.

Compatibility: Methanol, Water, Oil & Fuel (see not below).

Restrictions: Not recommended for us with unleaded fuels and ethanol blends as it is known to allow the permeation of fuel smell through the layers as well as excessively reducing the life of the rubber compound.

Not to be used with brake fluids.

Not recommended for use around extreme heat sources such as turbochargers.
