What Fuel Line Do You Need to run with E85 and Ethanol, or Methanol Fuel?

0 comments / Posted on by SPELAB

The use of Ethanol and Methanol fuels has become increasingly popular in recent years, especially with the rise of high horse power turbo supercharged blown EFI engines.  The E85 or Ethanol proves to be a cost effective fuel that can provide octane and power potential needed for demanding applications.  Additionally it can have a cooling effect on intake charges.  

However, Ethanol can be corrosive, create a gel like substance in some instances, and may damage fuel system components that would otherwise not be effected by gasoline and race gas.  

Special fuel filters must be used, and you certainly want to make sure your fuel pump is compatible, but what about fuel line?  

SPELAB Auto Parts works, sells, and carries only parts we believe in and have used ourselves.

SPELAB PTFE is not prone to temperature(Working Temperature: -60F to 500F) and pressure.  This makes it an excellent option for corrosive fuel, as well as power steering lines, turbo oil lines, etc.  For these reasons it is also a great option for E85 and Ethanol fuels as well as Methanol.  

One drawback to PTFE line is the cost.  All in with fittings and hose it is a substantial price increase.
