What size and how long?Asked on 04/18/2012 by John Spangler
You'll need to measure from your the point where you fill on your boat to the intake on the tank, most filler hose is the same diameter 1 1/2 inch. TimAnswered on 05/02/2012 by TIM FIVES
I used 1 1/2", but measured the tank nipple with a caliper. Order an extra foot, for bends and ease of working. Then cut with a hack saw, and snip the wire, and vacuum the i/s before connecting.Answered on 04/24/2012 by JOSEPH BAKER

can this 1-1/2" diameter be preshaped prior to installation? I have a tight radius coming off the aluminum tank connection and wanted to minimized the strain on the fitting. I was hoping to get some shape into the hose to effect a 45 degree bend. (ps I know it's flexible but is there a way to get it to hold a shape? )Asked on 07/30/2021 by Tim from RI
I am not aware of any method short of securing it to a piece of rigid material that forms the angle.Answered on 07/30/2021 by Paul
