I just use 5/16" fuel line. Standard fuel line now days is rated for 250
psi. We do burst tests on it at work, and most will go higher than that.
The parts department will tell you it is not FI rated, but they want to
sell you the $3 a foot stuff.
The external braided stuff is crap now days. You were lucky that it
didn't happen on the freeway.
