Silicon tube is not good with petrol :ShakeHead:

You used to be able to get a fuel line called "red line" which had a red line down the side that way clear as vinyl and OK with petrol. Looking for it now just turns up results for red silicon.

What used to be Small Parts, Inc. is now Amazon Supply.  Nevertheless they're worth a look.  For instance, they have 1/16 tubing...

Certainly worth exploring a bit.

Steve,

DuBro products offers short lengths (2-3 ft.) of clear silicone and "Tygon" yellow line for use with gasoline. I can't tell if the Tygon is transparent or not. The Tygon is available in 3/32, 1/8, and 5/32.
