Sorry Sam, meant to say urethane. That is what I am using in my sump drain hoses and overflow return from header, but in either case, I was just recommending Corbin only use the clear tubing temporarily to check for bubbles, then go back to his previous hose. I stated that clearly. The bubbles are easy to see in clear tubing.

First off, IMHO, never ever use vinyl tubing. When exposed to fuel it shrinks and hardens. This can lead to air leaks at the fittings. QAC said to use the vinyl tubing, but that was over 40 years ago.
I have found that even a very small amount of air in the lines, bubbles so small that they are difficult to see, cam make your pump rattle.
I have recently had good luck with the blue tinted urethane tubing available from Aircraft Spruce.
