Gates Corp.’s Automotive Aftermarket unit now offers Barricade Fuel Injection hose, a line of low-permeation hoses designed to withstand a wide range of fuel blends, improve vehicle safety, help protect the environment and improve fuel efficiency. The line for carbureted automobiles and small-engine/off-highway applications also has added two new diameters and is approved for use with gasoline, diesel, biodiesel, methanol, ethanol and gasohol fuels, as well as aggressive fuel mixes such as higher-ethanol blends.

The hose’s Aramid fiber reinforcement allows for a maximum working pressure rating of 225 psi, and its built-in five-layer GreenShield barrier technology helps the fuel hose reduce fuel vapor permeation and fuel waste and meet the requirements of the California Air Resources Board and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
