    Does 1/2" submersible fuel hose exist? where?

    Hey,

    I am installing a new fuel pump and the suction side is a AN8 fitting, the hydra-mat outlet is also 1/2 and I'd like to minimize the suction head of the pump.

    its a Pierburg L3LM screw pump running at 17.5V PWM control, so capable 500+lph at open flow and ~430lph at 70psi at 100% duty. being screw it's much more efficient that a walbro 460 and won't pulse/surge at lower duties. even at 17.5v at 80psi it's only pulling ~17amps.

    this thing:


    the line from pickup to the pump will be about 50cm so I'd like to keep it 1/2" if I can, but can't find any submersible hose in that size.

    any ideas?

    alibaba sellers claim to have SAE 30R10 hose, but for how much of a fuckaround it is to get to an R34 fuel pump I want a decent legitimate brand that actually sells what the specs say.

    I'm using that in 3/8" for pump outlet, but they don't make 1/2". hence my post specifically asking about 1/2".
