If you run at high pressures, like the powerstroke in Fords, you'll want to use SAE 30R9. You'll never have to replace it because it won't degrade with VO or bioD. It isn't cheap so use it only where you need to have flexability. I use it between my FPHE on the firewall and the fuel selector valve on the engine and for the fuel return leaving the engine.
