Anyone have a good source? After 4/5m worth.. Found an eBay link, but they can't tell me even how much you get! Rather random..

Also, what hose lines would people use for the vapour lines back to the carbon canister?

Gates supply hose in 25 foot rolls, about 7.6m. Buy the whole roll and have a bit spare wink

I'd imagine the cheaper low pressure hose for carburettor engines would be fine for the carbon cannister?

There is no pressure in the carbon canister lines so you can use other types but it’s also a smaller diameter.

Use the same ethanol resistant pipe for the carbon canister too .. anything with petrol or petrol vapour should be in good quality hose in my opinion.

A customer told me that there is plenty of fake gates hose floating around too .. on his recommendation I switched to cohline hose and have never looked back.

Do you know the diameter?

Also a good shout.. I had heard the same about fake Gates too! Cheers!

Can’t remember off the top of my head but you can see and measure it in the engine bay. The outside diameter is important as when if you are running the length of the car as some parts are tight between the body and chassis..

Vehicle wiring products in Ilkeston. Local to me, so I picked some up last year, genuine stuff. They do mail order too.
