What dispensing hose does: The hose at the dispenser transfers fuel from the fueling system to the nozzle. It is one of the most prominent components of the entire fueling system that the average person sees and uses. As such, it is subject to significant wear and tear.

Selecting the right hose: There are numerous types of hoses for specific applications: conventional gasoline and diesel; vapor recovery; biodiesel and ethanol of various ratings. In addition, some states require low-permeation hose for environmental compliance reasons. Check with your Source representative to determine the right hose for your application.
