Just make sure when you buy the hose that it is alcohol friendly. Where ever you buy from it jegs, summit local speed shop it should say use with most fuels and alcohol. Russell makes a quality hose. The fittings there are no special fittings. Even with a quality hose you should change the hose every two seasons. Alcohol will break down the rubber faster than gas. I change mine every two years if it needs it or not just to be safe. The fittings will get a white film on them after use but can be cleaned very easy.

Most of the braided hose from the major mfg (ie, Goodridge, Earls, XRP,) is alchohol compatible....You still need to flush the system because alcohol will eventually eat the rubber if its left untreated. You can always go with a teflon hose, however, when you do that you limit yourself on fitting selection.

Get teflon lined hoses. Thats what we always had when we ran alcohol. It wont eat it up like it does the rubber.
