Some will argue that silicone is not a good material to be using in the
automotive environment, as gasoline and oil will degrade silicone on
contact.  We have had experiences with this, and while silicone hoses
will swell under prolonged contact with petroleum products, it will not
cause them to burst or fail unless under high pressures.  If you
are worried about silicone hoses failing, you can go with Viton.  Be
warned, Viton hoses are not cheap!  Small diameter Viton hoses go for
about $10/foot.  Viton is high-temperature and petroleum resistant.
