i can say dont use the tygon from hong kong agape jelly or something was the seller... it does not shrink up but its breaking at thegrommet hole or where it goes into the tank allowing junk to get pulled into carb ..... causing the screen to get clogged this happened with in 3 or 4 months ... stuff is trash...i used oregon from mowers4u and it shrunk up and got hard.....never just broke though....looking forward to hear what others are using and how it compares,,,,,,

A lot of companies are making high ethanol resistant fuel lines in the 3/32x3/16..even Stens has gotten in on the act with the true blue product...but from what I have seen of it, it is a little stiffer than the 4040, causing operators to have to "weight the filters down" to keep them in the bottom of the tank..It is very resistant to the ethanol though..I have sold a little over 400 feet of it since it came out, and a lot of customers like it...

Kevin, I am sending you 2 feet of the 1200, and also 2 feet of the stens true blue, which is also low perm..I think it is actually softer and easier to work with than the 1200..I cant tell a lot of difference in the workability of the 1200 over the 1100.. both are kinda stiff.. and that little fuel filter is a pita to get into the 1200 as well in the 80x140...anyway, try it out, I already put some in a weedeater trimmer for trial..Thanks, Bobby

Posting this here so others can see your findings.

i have some of the true blue 100% ethanol compatible stuff here. havent tried it and Stens is pretty secretive with it. The 4040 tygon from stens is in the gobain box with just a stens sticker on the box. True blue line is in a dedicated stens box with no reference to gobain or tygon.

Bobby from midtnpower sent this to me when he sent the LP 1200 out.   The true blue is much easier to work with, just a little stiffer than the f 4040, not as stiff as the 1200. 

I think he was telling me the true blue was much easier to work with then the 1100 we were talking about.
