Default How to lengthening a 5/8" id fuel tank vent hose

I would like to create a loop in my 5/8" ID fuel tank vent hose and need to lengthen it by about a foot. Does anyone know of a fitting I could place in line to do this?

One of these, available at finer Home Depots everywhere.

Thanks, that's what I'm looking for, what is it called?

And is there such a fitting with a 90 degree elbow?

thanks everyone

I found the 90 degree barb, 5/8" inside diameter, online at Amazon, ordered it on Sunday, had it on Monday. Had to buy two, for $10 including free delivery. Saved a bunch oh time running around to stores to look for it so I didn't mind too much having to buy two when I needed one.

Neither Home Depot nor my local commercial plumbing supply house had it. Plumbing supply house had 1/2 " and 3/4" id in stock, but not 5/8".
