Biofuels such as E85 and biodiesel have corrosive effects on certain rubber components like those found in a vehicle's fuel system. Goodyear Engineered Products has developed a hose that is resistant to the degrading effect. The fuel line, such as Goodyear Flexsteel, Ambassador, and BC Gasoline Marina, is currently available and was displayed at the recent Association for Hose and Accessories Distribution convention. Sounds like a killer party, eh? Still, such a product gives even more mainstream backing to an alternative fuel looking for its big break.
Another biofuel-compatible line for refineries and tanker trucks is also available.
