I have been using "Oregon" fuel line for a couple of years with no problems. I have heard a lot about "Tygon" fuel line. Yesterday I had a customer who needed the fuel lines on his trimmer replaced. He said he did not want me doing it because I was not using "Tygon" fuel line. Is Tygon a better product? it is a little more expensive. Is it worth the extra money? All comments will be greatly appreciated.

I prefer Tygon over Rotary line as it does not shrink up after you start using it. The comparable Rotary line works good when first installed but after a few months shrinks up and sometimes starts leaking where the line enters the tank. I have used some Oregon line in the past and it worked alright, or at least I never had any complaints. For all I know Tygon may make it. The cost difference is not enough for me to worry about, besides I just pass it along to the customer.

I doubt you will ever have a customer say I want you to use Oregon fuel line, but most don't know Tygon either.

We have been using Tygon for the last 2 years and my customers and we are very happy with it and appears to hold up very well with todays fuels.

Thanks for the advise. I think that I will start replacing my fuel line with Tygon as I need to order new.
