    I've considered using non-merc line, like tygon, in the past but ended up going with the merc hose. Blue would look nice, let us know how it works.

    Going up 50% in size will be sketchy. They need to fit really snug. It's also VERY important that you're using a fuel/oil rated hose.

    Pro marine sells the various sizes. Tygon looks nice but not available in every size.

    I use the Tygon in yellow so I can see the oil inside it. I also put a small zip tie at each connection

    I use 3/32 blue methanol rated hoses. Look nice, don't get stupid soft over time...don't need ties on merc barbs cause they fit super tight.
