|Fuel line hose reduces emissions
Gates Corp. Automotive
What: Gates Barricade low-permeation fuel-line hose for fuel injection
Innovation: Many fuel line hoses were developed for carbureted vehicles. But most engines now use fuel injection, so the lines must withstand high pressure and handle various fuel and blends, including biofuel. The Gates hose resists permeation, so it cuts emissions, and can handle more pressure than most lines.
