    Thanks Steve, I wasn't sure if MS6000 would handle autofuel. Appreciate the help. Larry

    I thought there was a issue with 6000 and auto fuel.

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but do you folks still recommend either the MS6000 hose or the Parker Superflex? I've got some of the Parker Superflex in my wingroot and it is *almost* kinked. Any suggestions? Is the Stratoflex or Aeroquip stuff from Spruce any better?

    I'm planning to get the autofuel stc as soon as I can.

    Parker Super-Flex will not bend as tight a radius without kinkinging as I have discovered as well. I have used Aeroquip 15-25-6 as well which is what Aviat uses on the Husky. I have never had an issue with auto fuel and Mil6000.PXL_20210503_131519006.jpg

    Which bends tighter, the Aeroquip or the Mil-6000?

    And what does the "15-25-6" indicate?

    Thanks

    Mil6000 and the Aeroquip 1525 hose are about the same. Super-Flex not as good.

    Aeroquip 1525 is the hose and -6 is the size 3/8".

    Mil6000, Parker Super-Flex and Aeroquip 1525 in that order. You can see the difference in outside diameter.
