Fuel hose

Hi, Yesudian; If the pressure hose doesn't have fittings on either end, you can buy high pressure fuel hose in bulk at most any auto parts store. (Be sure to use the proper clamps) If it does have a fitting on either end, we have a business here that can make a new one reusing the fittings. Check with an auto parts store and they may be able to direct you to such a business.
Good luck.

Fuel hose comparision

Sir will the pressure in the fuel pump hose be the same in all cars like

Mind you I have only dealt with vehicles in North America.

And there seems to be two types of fuel line (not getting into ID and OD) which is high and low pressure. Low pressure lines for example are found in motorcyles, lawn mowers and such. In the car you get into the high pressure lines. So you get that line in the correct outside and inside dimension and replace the old line.

I think your issue is you may be in some country without so many auto stores. Here, so many choices as well as Amazon, etc.

Fuel line

Hi, Yesudian; Fuel injected engines are almost always high pressure (some up to 60-80psi), although there are others that are low pressure. I'm not familiar with your model of car, but you should specify that you want high pressure hose.

Good luck.
