Venom makes a really dark blue fuel tubing that you can find in any hobby shop that deals with cars. Be careful with it though, it cuts really easy. It's real soft and it doesn't take much to put a small slit in it that's hard to even find.

Guys,
Just remember when you use this colored fuel tubing that most of it like you say is softer. We are not using this type fuel tubing on YS engines because of the pressure that is built up in the lines and fuel tank setup. It can allow the pressure to escape around the fittings which in turn can drive you crazy trying to figure out why you can not get a good needle valve setting to be constant on your YS engine!!

This is only an opinion of why WE no longer use it! In my reply you will notice that I say " it CAN allow the pressure to escape around the fittings", I never mentioned that this was law and it was the only way to look at the issue. Leaking is a possibility with this fuel tubing and if you choose to use it, great for you! If you never have problems with it, that is also great! I do not and will not use it.

Have a great day!
