Does anybody know where I can buy fuel hose in Denver? I need 9/16 and I can't find it at the auto parts stores.

If you are close to Evans and SantaFe. On Track Performance. Parker Hose off of Santa Fe and Oxford should have that also.

Nope and nope :(

Kubat Equipment - nope
Central State Hose - nope
NAPA, Autozone, O'Reilly, Advance - nope

On MUD some say BAP might have it - application is a VW, but not sure how to even ask for that? :confused:

This place in Boulder has a lot of harder to find metric sized hoses. They specialize in European parts (and tires) but I was able to find heavy duty braided hoses that I couldn't find anywhere else.

Tried them, no dice.

IPW didn't have it either :(

Good call Matt! :thumb:

They had 14mm in stock - for $11.16/foot! :eek:

I guess that's better than the $17.92 + shipping that SOR wants for it...

Too bad Boulder is such a hike for me. And I need like 13 1/2 inches but I probably have to buy it by the foot.

Anyone in Boulder willing to pick it up for me and bring it to the next meeting? :) If you have a 40 you could pick up 3 feet and we could split it! :D

I can do it Matt.

Given the scarcity of this stuff, they could probably charge $50 / foot.....

So the order is for 2 ft of 14mm standard fuel hose?

That's all I need. If you want/need to get some for yourself then you could get 3 feet and we could split it.

I know that this thread is getting a little old, but I have luck with this quite often.

Most of the brands that major part stores carry have downloadable online catalogs (ie, gates, goodyear, dorman, BWD, Timken, BCA, sealed power, pioneer,...., etc)

If you hunt down the part number that you need and call the parts store with it, you would be supprised how often you can get what you need.

If a counterperson glances at the computer screen, tells you they can't get it, and never gets the catalog off the shelf, try this method. A lot of times they'll have what you need on the shelf.:cheers:
