Petroleum Fuel Hoses

Petroleum Fuel Hoses from Amazon Hose and Rubber

Amazon stocks a variety of fuel hoses, for many applications, including gasoline, diesel, fuel oil, and other petroleum-based products. You can find these on small outboard engines, gasoline filler necks, marine engines, while filling up your vehicle at the pump, or the tankers filling up the pumps themselves.

We provide exceptional quality products, meeting or exceeding SAE standards, as well as U.S. Coast Guard approval, from manufacturers like Goodyear, Thermoid, Alfagomma, & Weatherhead, to name a few. We can band, crimp, internally expand, or in some cases, supply “push-on” fittings that are simply pressed into the hose, which provides a permanent attachment.

From ¼” to 4”, low pressure to medium, our extensive inventory offers our customers a number of options. With those options available, our expert staff will gladly assist in answering any questions, address any concerns & lead you in the right direction.

Diesel fuel hoses are suction and discharge hoses especially manufactured for the supply of oil-based products, such as petroleum, gasoline, diesel and fuel oil. Diesel fuel hoses are used with a range of compatible fittings and couplings to avoid leakage of the fuel and entry of foreign elements during supply.

Diesel Fuel Hose: Rating Systems

A diesel fuel hose can be used for a number of marine and fuel extraction purposes. To maintain safety and quality standards, diesel fuel hoses are rated for specific applications using a combination of a number and a letter.

The US Coast Guard (USCG) has rated four types of diesel fuel hoses, A1, A2, B1 and B2. According to the USCG recommendations, all marine applications must use the Type B hose at fuel pump and carburetor sections of the fuel line system. A leakage at these sections can cause huge loss of fuel. Also, the Type B diesel hose is fire resistant, minimizing the risk of a fire outbreak. The USCG also recommends the Type 1 hose for critical applications due to their low permeation characteristic. Coast Guard standards require all fuel hoses used for marine applications to bear the mark USCG every 12 inches, while specifying the manufacturing date.

The American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC) recommends the Type B1 fuel hose for diesel-based applications. The Type A1 hose is the best option for gasoline supply. This hose is less permeable, highly durable, heat resistant and does not collapse under high pressure or vacuum.

Petroleum products have a huge wear and tear effect on fuel hoses. Thus, it is essential to buy high quality hoses to ensure long-term results. However, one should check fuel hoses for cracks, rot or sponginess every quarter. According to the USCG standards, fuel hoses should be wiped with a dry rag and checked for fuel odor.

Rule of Thumb
- Type A: Above Deck
- Type B: Below Deck

Essential Considerations While Buying a Diesel Fuel Hose

Here are some basic considerations that you need to keep in mind while buying a diesel fuel hose:

  • Buy submersible fuel hoses for in-tank applications.
  • Look for industry standards, such as ABYC, SAE and US Coast-Guard.
  • Beware of stainless steel and PVC based fuel hose fittings.

Questions from our customers

  • question:

    Do you carry hoses for LP (propane) generators?

    I need a hose from my LP gas head to my generator. It needs to be 3/8″, and 12 feet long. 3/8″ M and F fittings.

    Thank you!


  • question:

    Good Day,
    Your site states, beware of stainless steel fitting on diesel hose. Can you explain why?

  • question:

    Can you supply 1/2″ B! grade with AN 8 female on one end and an8 male on the other?

  • question:

    I am looking for a B-1 type diesel fuel transfer hose 3/4″ x 50 feet long with 3\4″ MPT on each end and must have a very low permeation factor as the hose will be used inside a building. Do you have something like this in stock?
    thank you

  • question:

    Good day,
    I am trying to find a semi-rigid fuel fill hose to replace the one used on my 1992 ford pick-up. It is semi-rigid so it won’t collapse on some very minor bends.
    It would need to be 15/16 I.D. or 1″ I.D. x 24″ long. If you have something that would work please respond with pricing and shipping to 49326 area code.
    Thank you,

    • Amazon Hose answers:


      We have a hose that works perfectly for that application. It’s actually wire reinforced which allows it to make bends without collapsing.

      I will send you an email with pricing information on the hose that I am talking about.

  • question:

    Do you supply hose for DEF fluid in 1/2 and 1 inch?

    Thank You.

    • Amazon Hose answers:

      Thank you for your inquiry in regards to DEF hose. Unfortunately, that’s not something that we carry at this time.

      I would suspect that as widely as DEF is now being used it may be a market that some of the manufacturers we represent will start to support in the near future, so we may carry it at some point. Right now though, we do not have a product rated to handle it.

  • question:

    I am looking for a fuel hose 1″ ID x 29″ long. Do you carry this fuel hose?

    • Amazon Hose answers:

      Yes, we carry 1″ fuel hose in stock and can cut you whatever length you need.

  • question:

    Do you have a 1/2 hose that can stay submerged in a gas tank as part of a fuel pickup line?

    • Amazon Hose answers:

      We have standard fuel hose made for fuel to go through the inside, but nothing meant to be submerged.

  • question:

    is there a clear 5/16 or 3/8 B1 approved hose for marine diesel?

    • Amazon Hose answers:

      Sorry, all that we would have for diesel fuel would be black rubber hoses, nothing clear.

  • question:

    I’m in need of 2 feet on 1 1/4″ ID of gasoline fuel filler hose. Do you carry it? and how much is it? Thanks! Joe

    • Amazon Hose answers:

      Yes, we carry fuel filler hose in various diameters and can cut it to whatever length you need.

      Give us a call and we’ll get you set up!

  • question:

    I am looking for a USCG rated solution for connecting a diesel hose at a right angle to a 1.5″ fill stub. The stub points straight up, and I have very little room above the tank for making the bend. Some sort of pre-formed hose, similar to a radiator hose, would be ideal. Thanks. Harry

    • Amazon Hose answers:

      Unfortunately all we offer in our petroleum hoses are flexible hoses, nothing molded or preformed. Do you have room to make the 90 degree bend with a pipe fitting instead of a hose?

  • question:

    Is rubber fuel line compatable for use with natural gas?

    • Amazon Hose answers:

      No, you need a specific hose for natural gas. Unfortunately that’s not something that we carry.

  • question:

    Is an oil hydraulic hose compatible with diesel fuel use?

    • Amazon Hose answers:

      In most case a hydraulic hose can be used for diesel fuel. A hose with a nitrile tube has a good resistance to both diesel fuel & hydraulic oils.

  • question:

    I am looking for 1.125 ID fuel filler hose. Do you stock this size?

    Thank you,


    • Amazon Hose answers:

      Yes, we carry flexible fuel filler hose in many sizes, including 1-1/8″. We sell it by the foot and can cut you any length you need.
