All, found those. Noting you said you’d bought 1m of pipe, this won’t be enough to do all the rubber fuel hoses on a K series. Don’t forget there is the longer low pressure return hose from the fuel rail back to the tunnel, as well as the shorter ones from the pump to the filter and from the metal pipe in the tunnel to the fuel rail. You’ll need 2m maybe a bit more. I’ll try and measure later.

SM25T, With a risk of buying hoses not what they say they are would you trust these from Advanced Fluid Solution's? I've measured up and 2m will be enough.

Thanks Tomb, I missed the return hose need to check out and buy more hose and clips.

That is a good price from advanced Fluid Solutions - I was influenced by previous posts recommending Gates,Codam, Goodyear or Conti

AFS is exactly where I bought my fuel hose ! It's a nice drive in the 7 from here. Also bought the type of fuel hose clamps I linked to above from them

Thanks. These Oetiker clips - do I need a special tool, or will pliers with jaws like these be OK? I've had these pliers in my tool drawer for years, borrowed from my Dad but I've not had a use for them - possibly until now!

I used double ear clamps and a pair of long pincers no problems at all - if your concerned a bout nipping the the hose you can lighlty smear vaseline inside the clip allowing it to slid over the hose as you tighten - same as you would for silicone hoses.
