Is there such a thing as a transparent hose that is rated for diesel
fuel? Something like 3/8" ID would be ideal.

Look for "tygothane"

Fuel-rated hose is easy to come by at small engine shops. If it will
handle gasoline or gas-oil mix, it will handle diesel as well, IME.
Motorcycle shops also are a source. I buy mine from an on-line
motorcycle supplier - polyurethane fuel hose, many different diameters
available. Generic works fine, but you can get something with a tygon
brand name if you want to spend more money.

80 cents a foot plus shipping from


(fuel system parts - fuel line)

There might be less expensive suppliers, but I didn't find any when I
was last actually buying the stuff. They do stock 3/8"
