Is fuel line stronger against vacuum than the vacuum hoses?

I used fuel line repairing my air cond. programmer because that was size that fit. And I wondered which was better.

It depends on the tubing and maker. Vacuum tubing shouldn't give much, however the tubing on the authors car looks weak and as if it collapese on itself. Might be a condition of some fuel fume seepage into the hose.

That is a two diameter line! The tit on the distribution tower is larger than the FPR. I found a generic 3 size adapter at CarQuest to join the different size vacuum lines.

Aaron.. Selling everything for the 94?
Off Topic:

I'm getting into an SSEi one way or another.

Remember when I said I was practicing on the 94? I never thought I'd be giving it up, but Annalisa had a heart to heart with me a few nights ago. She understands the bonneville is safer, but she just doesn't feel comfortable in such a large car. It wasn't what she said, it was the way she said it. So we're compromising. I'm moving the 94 and all the crap I picked up for it and I'm going to get my SSEi. After winter rolls around, we're going to do some research and find a good smaller car for her that isn't somewhere between a toaster and a lawnmower on wheels.
