    If I am not mistaken fluoro- elastomer is Viton. Viton is just a trade name for the the same thing. There are several derivatives of the product and I belive this is one.

    Yes you can get in two sizes and the package I got had 12 feet in it.
    Don’t be shocked this stuff is expensive but it works I believe it is about the same price as Viton. The only thing this stuff is sized for us (ID and OD.) and is a little more flexible.

    From what I have read on the subject, Viton is a registered trademark from Dupont, but fluoroelastomer is an FKM designation (basically a title of something or process).I am sure the Sullivan fuel line is fine. I am just indicating my preference to be Viton.

    I can be totally wrong about my understanding of this. I think I read sometime back when researching this that there are many fluoroelastomer variations and any company can perform that process.

    See this article for more information on FKM fluoroelastomer designation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fluoroelastomer

    No I agree with you. Please note this is just a discussion and basically to end up with products that we can use.

    Agreed. We try to help each other and make the whole process best as possible and one great thing is that we do have options. Be a pretty dull world if there were only one flavor of ice cream :D.
