Re: ??Will Gasoline eat PVC Pipe??
P.V.C is a no go with petrol, polyethylene is petrol resistant but cannot be glued for your corners so you must
weld it and on thin tube this will be reasonably hard not to get pin holes in your welds.Also when you hose clamp it to the filler / tank it won't seal any where near as good as the rubber hose as its more ridged than rubber.
As for using hose check what it is and weather it breaks down over time with petrol, a lot of hoses contain extra chemicals over the primary plastic to make them flexible
which can cause break down in time.
I'd be using exhaust tubing and weld in bends to suit if you can over any of the above.
