Gates’ low-permeation Barricade hose prevents fuel vapor loss while delivering peak fuel efficiency. The hose is designed for virtually any engine application that is equipped with a conventional carburetor, including cars, trucks, ATVs, tractors, and lawn and garden equipment. According to the company, the Barricade hose is the lowest permeation, multifuel compatible hose on the market today. Its Greenshield barrier technology allows Barricade to exceed stringent California Air Resource Board, EPA, and other state and federal requirements. With an average annual fuel savings of about 1 gal (3.8 L) per vehicle, Barricade hose can reduce the amount of gasoline consumed by U.S. motorists. With its built-in, five-layer Greenshield barrier technology, the Barricade hose achieves five times less fuel vapor permeation (1 g/m2) and fuel waste than conventional hoses. Unlike standard fuel line hoses, Barricade hose can accommodate more fuel types, including gasohol, diesel, biodiesel, ethanol, gasoline, and methanol.
