Both Dubro and GS Racing fuel tubing are really good. I prefer the Dubro fuel tubing myself.

I have available Serpent fuel tubing and DuBro.

I prefeer DuBro for their thicker walls and is cheaper than Snake tube.

I use the transparent blue tubing on the roll at the not-so local hobby shop. Works great. I tried the colored one thats made by dubro and i like it ok. It is stiffer than the hobby shop roll kind. When it comes down to it. I dont care what kind i use...as long as it doesnt have holes in it.

Woow, DuBro tubes thicker than Serpent's? I thought the Serpent one was already thick. The GS ones are way much thinner.

Comparing the Serpent one vs. the DuBro, probably has the same ID, but DuBro has a thicker wall that insulates better the fuel, some time I used Serpent tube for fuel line and got several vaporlocks and flameouts.

Those was done because on my engine, the fuel intake needs to be routed between the head the the carb and tube touches frankly the head for some lenght of it and passes heat to the carb. Switched to Dubro in the same fuel line layout and haven't ever had another vaporlock due to fuel evaporation.

Use Serpent fuel line for the pressure intake.
