Hi Kenny

I've heard the OEM Echo Black Fuel Line will last 10 years.

Cheers

I agree with Max, the thicker, black ones are the best. Lots of brands, some probably better than others. I find the one my local hardware shop is selling last for years. Yeah that yellow line tends to go hard and cracks in a fairly short space of time.

Honestly haven't had issues with tygon lines.

True Blue line by stens would have to be the most hopeless line I have ever used though - bloody terrible. So knock that one off the list

Where do you buy the black lines from? I've never had much luck finding small trimmer/mower lines that are solid, only ever got the yellow lines that end up breaking apart.

I have a Stihl FS36 trimmer with original black lines and that still runs after 20 years.

The OEM Echo Black Fuel Line is easy to find in the US but not sure who sells it cheap here.

Clark Rubber and Repco sell the black solid mower fuel line.

Probably best to look on eBay.

Cheers
Max.
