    not a fan of it since it tends to get hard and stay flat

    I think Mesa Hose carries the NHRA legal stuff. I have seen the heavy duty fuel hose used too. Pretty much anything but the collapsible stuff, because it doesn't take long and it hardens flat, then you don't have much airflow potential.

    Is marine fuel hose still the thing to use? i have it on my FED. It's heavy, but seems to last well with alcohol/oil vapor
