In the main tanks I am trying out the new yellow ProFlex tubing from Sullivan. So far this year it is doing well, does not swell up and come off of tubes, no need to tie on or double up. In the smaller header tanks I like the paper thin wall tubing Hirobo sells, last a long time. 30% is hard on most anything it comes into contact with. Through the years I have used most of the brands, many are no longer available.

Using the Synergy type in the main tank and very thin wall tubing in the header, the Proflex looks very good and is resistant to Methanol.

Brian how flexable is the Proflex, does the clunk move about easily following the fuel, are you using standard or large?

Using the standard size. Yes it is flexible enough to follow the fuel in the main tanks. Flying a Hirobo Freya, X-Spec and SDX all summer without issues. Tubing inside all three tanks are long enough 80-100mm and clunk heavy enough. I do not use in header tanks, the tubing is short and clunks are lighter, does not work well in them.

Thanks I just bought some, I guess only time will tell how good this stuff is resistant to exhaust gases,its hard to get over the clunk, a bit of oil helped but once its on it cannot come off, one has to cut it off.
