Buying Fuel hose & ethanol

Looking to buy new fuel hose. Came across this very useful article from Volksbolts - fuel hose selection

http://www.volksbolts.com/faq/fuelhose.htm

The main points are to get the R9 version and buy a branded/marked hose.

I know the forum has discussed the effects of ethanol and additives but I thought the article on the selection of hose type was useful for those not in the know

I've moved to entirely PTFE on the blue car with AN fittings to the fuel rail and Bosch 044 pump. Got fed up changing the lines every year. R6 should help if you want to stay with rubber.
