If you have an o'Reilly near by, ask for item# 27314 and it's about $1.99/ft.

It is Gates Barricade fuel hose and is rated for biodiesel, and even Methanol. I've had it on my cars for a while now and have no issues with it.

For the return lines, I got the hose from the dealer after reading everyone's experiences with it. I believe the issue with the viton hose was some of it doesn't hold up well with heat, and the injector area gets pretty warm. No issues with the dealer hose. If you leave some extra on the lines when you cut them, if you need to remove them for some reason you can cut the ends off and they will fit tight again when you reinstall.
