Not sure which board is best? Gas tank neck?

Hey guy, I didn't know which board to use. You can move it if you like. But my question is, Can you use a radiator hose to make a hose for the gas tank neck. I am told they will absorb the gas and ignite. Is this true? Is the hose for the gas neck a special hose? thanks

Wrong stuff, it will swell and get weak. A few parts stores have some diameters in straight lengths.

I would have to agree. I believe the ethenol in gas will make the rubber dry up and crack, which would in time make it leak.

Yup, its special hose. The rubber in radiator hoses will die quickly. NAPA sells the proper hose... or at least they did 2 years ago.

Well I finally went to my favorite salvage yard. Give $10 for everything from the door to the tank, including the overflow hose. Should have went there first. Thanks for the replies.

I have used radiator hoses for years, they work very well, don't swell or ignite that's bs, what they do with time is get very hard, in order to remove them they need to be cut and split, I usually use the universal accordion like type hoses.
