I used the PTFE on my transmission lines and they have worked well. I think they are not as flexible and can kink and crack if they are bent too much. But they seem to be more durable and easier to put the ends on than the other hose.
If they are relatively straight lines I would not hesitate to use them on fuel or oil lines to.

"Dunning-Kruger Effect"
-a type of Cognitive bias where people with little expertise or ability assume they have superior expertise or ability. This overestimation occurs as a result of the fact that they do not have enough knowledge to know they don't have enough knowledge.

Before you argue with someone ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective?" If not there is no point to argue.

First time I put them together I thought I must be doing it wrong. It can't be this easy. I have only done -4 and -6 thus far. But I'm going to have a -16 fuel line to make shortly. I have to think that vacuum lines would be perfect for this since it is resistant to collapse.

Bucky, I agree it should work quite well for vacuum hose. Not sure how cost effective it would be for that. I think it is more durable as long as it does not get kinked or bent too much.

Splicing is very time consuming!
A damaged 100 pair cable is 400 splices. Now imagine a 3200 pair cable.


And back some time ago.... 1500 pair pulp covered copper. Hand crimp beanies, then the latest state of the art, pneumatic crimpers. Woo hoo.
Oh and by the way, make your own lead splice cases, and pour your own end caps at the yard.

I put Aeroquip black on my 2017 on everything but the brakes, and only reason that was is because the car came with an off brand black hose and fittings. The aeroquip stuff is still as good as new. The off brand stuff has turned gold on the fittings. I normally and a scrooge ******* when it comes to saving money on things "that dont really matter", glad i spent the money on the good stuff, i might have been pissed after spending 1000+ on plumbing and for it to look like **** after 3 seasons.
