    Hey all I bought an outboard off craigslist and it has a fuel fitting that doesn't appear to be stock. It 5hp with an intergrated tank as well as the connection for an external. It has 2 prong style as opposed a single connector. It seems that stock Suzuki connectors are the single connections/prongs. What I've seen on the retail sites are Crystler, mercury, and yamaha that look like mine. How can i figure out what fuel line to buy? thanks.

    Best way would be to uninstall the fitting and take it with you.  Probably impractical.

    Take some measurements and a photo.  Go find the same fitting and buy the fuel hose that goes with it.

    Third option, buy one of each and keep the receipts.

    Edit: Post a picture here and I'll bet it can be identified.

    I guess thats it. Everywhere I look it shows that connector is the DF25-40 and single style was stock for my motor. What size fuel line do I need for a 5hp?

    Is there a reason why can't I use 3/8? Just curious.

    Dont see why not, just kinda big? Someone with more knowledge might chime in.

    I just know that anytime you talk about a micro or flats skiff, 5/16 is normally always the answer.

    Ive seen 150hp engines get away with 5/16...
    If you go to big (garden hose), your little "pulse pump" on your motor wont beable to make enough vacuum to move such a large amount of fuel.

    5/16 stuff is cheaper anyways..

    Thanks guys...I'm pretty much settled on the attwood 3gal tank and attwood uni 3/8 fuel line kit for my setup. I'm assuming it just as good as any other out there.

    I have used 3/8" fuel lines to run auxiliary engines in the same application this engine was likely used as. A fuel line can be too small, but I see no problem with larger.
