I need to replace the fuel filler hose and vent line on my CJ. It looks like the filler hose is about 1" inside diameter, the vent line around 11/16. My problem is no local parts stores have any fuel line this big. I assume this is hose for use only with fuel, and nothing else will work, anyone have any ideas on where to look or what to ask for? I would like to pick this up local and save the time a shipping charges from mail order. Thanks.

I thought it was just a small radiator hose? May be what you have to go with?

If you have the 15 gallon tank, 4WD Hardware has the hoses. Try a marine shop for bulk hose or a speed shop for bulk braided hose (obviously more expensive).

What's wrong with using radiator hose? I used some regular 1" diameter hose on my CJ-7 about a year and a half ago. The one concern I had was that the gas would deteriorate the hose, but it still seems fine. Is there some other reason I should change it to a hose made for this? This seems like the best solution if you have a body lift.

Just give it more time. The gas will slowly deteriorate that radiator hose and you will have nice little hose parts in your fuel.

I have replaced mine twice , getting the hose from a rubber hose supply house in town. We happen to have two here and you can get it in the length you need. They had both sizes.
