Summit Racing now carries Earl's Performance Vapor Guard Plumbing.The line of performance hose and fittings is designed for use with leaded and unleaded gasoline, gas/ethanol blends, E-85, diesel, biodiesel, methanol, and straight ethanol--it will not break down or leak like traditional hose and fittings.

There are more than 40 EPA-approved fuel blends available in the U.S. alone? What’s worse, virtually every single one is out to wreak havoc with fuel systems. The ethanol and other additives in modern fuel will break down traditional rubber hose, resulting in leaks, weeping, and vapor that cause nasty fuel odors. Oh, there’s more—once those rubber fuel lines are degraded, hose particles will plug up carburetor passages and fuel injector nozzles. Earl's Vapor Guard plumbing will prevent all that.

Vapor Guard Hose
Vapor Guard hose has three layers:
- Primary barrier inner liner resists heat and aggressive fuels

  • Vapor Guard barrier thermoplastic middle layer provides superior fuel isolation and prevents fuel vapor from escaping

- Exterior barrier provides extreme tolerance to heat and ozone

Vapor Guard hose is available for carbureted (50 PSI max pressure) or high pressure EFI (225 psi max) applications in 5/16 and 3/8 inch diameters.

Vapor Guard Hose Ends
Matching Vapor Guard hose ends are designed specifically for use with Vapor Guard hose. The hose ends have a brazed bent tube design for strength, a smooth retention bead that retains the hose under pressure, and are black anodized for good looks and corrosion protection. Assembly is a snap—simply cut the hose, push it on the hose end, and tighten the clamps. Vapor Guard hose ends are available in AN, NPT, and O-ring port styles.

Earl’s Vapor Guard hose and hose ends are not compatible with any Earl’s or other brand push lock-style hose and hose ends.
