Default Re: Made a fuel line out of a beer helment

Usually those beer helmets use cheap vinyl tubing. Gasoline will react with it and it will get hard as a rock and eventually yellow.
It is best to get yourself some real gasoline resistant tubing.
Once that vinyl turns hard it is a royal PITA to pull it off of the hose barbs on the petcock and carb inlet.
