I have the urethane fuel line on mine from a motorcycle shop, mine is blue.
The main fuel line from the fuel filter to the IP is 1/4" ID and the return
from the IP to the filter is 3/16" ID. The stuff is awesome, it is just like
the day I installed it 3 years ago and 40K miles later, with running WVO,
JP-8, 1010 oil and regular old diesel through it.

1/8 id works well, it stretches tight over the nipples so no leaks.
