Default Filler tube hoses

So the two filler hoses that run from the tube to the tank have rubbed against each other and made them unexceptionably thin on the walls. one is 1/2" and one is 1 1/2" inch. can radiator hose be used or do I have to special order it?

It has to be fuel compatable hoses. the fuel will make the hoses weak and it will leak over time. I know that there is some generic filler hose for sale at some specialty shops like performance shops, the old school kind. other than that, maybe a Napa auto parts. and as for the 1/2", i think there should be some 1/2" I/D hose for sale at the same place. make sure that it says that its compatible with FUEL INJECTION on the hose. these hoses tend to be stronger.
