Not to beat the dead horse, but rubber is a poor conductor of heat and alum is a GREAT conductor. TIH is more efficient, just do the math. The pex is not a great conductor either - why bother? 3/8" alum is about $1/ft.
I gained 10* by insulating SOME of my HIH lines w/foam pipe insulation. :shock:

If you live in an environment where the VO will not be SOLID in the fuel lines when you start off in the AM - I'm sure HOH is fine as long as you can heat the oil enough in other ways.

I have about 30ft of HIH on my system, 25ft is 'looped return'. With this alone, I get 190* VO before the heads. 8)

When I started with Used Cooking Oil, the only thing available was solid even in the summer. I had to get my fuel with a shovel. HoH was fine in the summer but even insulated HoH was marginal in the winter when the lines were exposed under the car. Now I run Aluminum tube in Hose, VW oil cooler, spin on insulated fuel filter and FPHE on all of my conversions. I do not remove the fats from my fuel.

I rarely insulate my lines except for the parts under the hood.
