2nd fuel line in the weedwacker.

This one turned to mush over the winter. I replaced the previous one 3 yrs ago. Its a Husqavarna 322L 12 yr old? I have a piece of line with the spec numbers on it. Does anybody have an idea what 5443249/ 11 W49G/1 is rated for. Because it sure isn't for E 10 . a 32:1 mix oil with a little MMO added. The return line failed too but I got enough fuel line to get it going. I'm really glad I stopped by to visit my sister.. My BIL dug up a piece , just in case. Sure enough It barely fit onto the pick up. The stuff I bought was too small but it worked for the primer hose.

I have used 2 grades w/o problems over the years. That is approx 3.00+ per ft..

1. A close Small Engine Dealer/Repair has the largest variety of f sizes/best quality/highest price (no # close).
2. Sears/Home Depot has 2 line variety packs, 2 sizes 1’ long ea that has worked well (Add below).
3. A friend wanted to drive approx 10 mi to an Auto Store for line @ 1.00 per ft. (which I w/n use).

Shopping in the wrong place for GOOD fuel line.

Google search for Du-Bro Tygon Fuel Tubing. It is sold mainly through Hobby stores that handle Radio Controlled Models. And it comes in many different sizes.

Tower Hobby
RC Planet
Horizon Hobby

For example.
