Standard for Protective Covers for Gasoline Fuel Line Tubing
This SAE Standard includes performance requirements for protective covers for flexible, non-metallic fuel tubing. Ultimate performance of the protective cover may be dependent on the interaction of the fuel tubing and protective cover. Therefore, it is recommended that tubing and cover combinations be tested as an assembly, where appropriate, to qualify to this document. This document is intended to provide guidance in regard to key performance parameters for protective covers for fuel tubing. This document is designed to allow selection of predetermined performance levels for these parameters. The engineer may select a specification by the use of a line call-out designation, which will denote the pertinent characteristics of the cover material and/or the tube/cover assembly and their corresponding performance criteria. The engineer is not required to select every characteristic, but only those deemed important to the application.
