Default Ethanol compatible fuel line?

A quick question for you guys....is a fuel line that is labeled:

ISO 8469-B1 CE 315-0380 3/8" 2006

ethanol compatible? I'm getting somewhat mixed reviews and I thought one of you guys would know for sure. TIA

I try to leave this up to the guys at Goodyear Rubber. They stay up on the latest changes and have always been helpful.

It's hard to buy any fuel line not ethanol compatible for the past ten to 15 years.

What years where the mercury lines that had all the problems?

Where there any other lines that had obvious problems?

My 1983 merc 150 never had any ethanol problems, but it never had any gas sitting in it while I owned it. Sold it last year. Unknown hrs 120psi all 6.

My 2007 Optimax 225 was delivered with non-ethanol hoses. The filter bowl was full of what looked like brown sugar.

Just had to have all hoses replaced.

My 2004 Merc was delivered with non-ethanol hoses as well. Same brown stuff all throughout the hoses and in the bowl.

My 2001 Merc EFI's fuel hoses were not either, we took them off and cut them in 1/2 and it was clear to see the inner plastic lining from the hose was missing where in contact with e-10.

I surely don't understand why a major manufacturer such as Mercury would produce an engine in 2007 that isn't alcohol resistant. Talk about another wrinkle to the Black Anchor myth ... or is this yet another reason why it's no myth!

I do not think it is Mercury, rather the manufacturer which rigged the boat.

Did you replace all the lines on the engine or just the gray lines that attach to the primer bulb?

How about the gray with red stripe fuel line that is run all over my F250 (2006 Yami)? It also runs from the engine to the primer bulb in the bildge. Is that line E10/Ethanol compatible?
Thanks, J

to nfairbank and to dhy4b
where were these hose?
in the engine cowling?
or in the boat.
hard to think merc was using bad hoses in 04 and 07, tho my brother in law has an 08 merc that had to have an in engine hose rplaced last month due to ethanol.
he said the hose was in the motor (115HP - 4s) between the fuel filter and the fuel sensor monitor/.
Mechanic said merc would pay to fix it but there was no announced recall

My hoses were external to the engine. I replaced all the way from engine to tank.
