The problem with standards is knowing all of the components. The linked standard is quite old and out of date. It requires A1 hose, which had a permeation rate of 100g/m2/day, whereas the newest USCG standard (and ABYC standard) requires hose designated A1-15, with a permeation rate less than 15g/m2/day. The “A” requires that the hose be fire resistant for 2.5 minutes in both standards. But in all cases the USCG standards apply to gasoline installations and the testing is done with gasoline. Even though the ABYC standard requires the same marking for diesel
installations, the actual testing definitions don’t have much to do with diesel
All valid and reasonable requirements. But, Gates, for instance has a truck fuel
hose rated at 1gm/m2/day when used with diesel or gasoline - a whole order of magnitude better at permeation than the newest USCG standard. But they don’t certify it for fire resistance, so it cannot be used on marine
, gasoline fuel
installations. Could be used for diesel, but up to you to decide if permeation or fire resistance is a more important criterion.
