high temp hose for Topsider

I've been using the Topsider to extract oil within a few minutes of shutting off the engine. The stiffer hose that goes down the dipstick tube is fine but the bigger hose that connects to the can has collapsed making for slow extraction. What grade or class of hose will resist temperature better? Is hose with visible reinforcing string any better?

Urethane hose will stand the heat pretty good. You can get it with the reinforcing brading as well. is the best source I have found. Even the reinforced PVC hose from home depot or Lowes would probably work better, but still wouldn't handle heat in excess of 180 degrees very well.
