Actually 5/16" fuel line is the better bet. The original is 8mm or 0.314"
5/16 being 0.312 is close enough to allow the reuse of the ends with a
bubble flaring tool. As well as standard compression unions as a repair in a
p.s. Mike, you have way too many cool toys

Its not even worth getting the prebent ones. Replacing them on the UrQ
is a piece of cake. Im doing it as we speak (?!) Just get a reel of
stainless line from summit (3/8", $32 for 20 feet). Use a bubble flare
tool and youre done. Plus being stainless you will never have to worry
about them again.
