  • Yamaha 25hp 2-stroke

    Hi,
    Looking for advice on replacing my fuel line assembly for my engine. I purchased a 3/8" assembly to replace my old one but 3/8" is definitely larger than what I am using now. What size fuel line is best to use for this engine? 5/16" or 1/4"? Also, I am using a mini-10 within the fuel line as well. In addition, can anyone recommend a 6 gallon tank that doesn't leak? Thanks in advance!

    Mueller makes great red polyethylene tanks that will last for years....regarding fuel line size/diameter, use about the same as original....in fact, I'd highly recommend Yamaha original equipment fuel hoses....no Auto-Zone/automotive hoses should be used...only marine specified hoses...

      Thanks for the reply. I found the Yamaha OEM fuel lines on the Interweb, however I am unsure what Yamaha recommends for a line size for this engine (nothing in the manual on this). I am thinking it is either 1/4" or 5/16". Is there anyway to find out for sure? Thanks again.

        being it is a Yamaha I am sure it is metric.
        But a 5/16" or 3/8" would work and would not cause any restriction to effect the motor

        1/4" may be good enough, but who knows for sure with the extra filter you installed.
        Did you try measuring your old one?

          Thanks...haven't tried measuring yet. Is it the inside diameter? Thinking I will go with the 5/16" which is 8mm metric...
