Gates Corp. has launched Barricade Fuel Injection hose, a premium line of low-permeation hoses that withstand a wide range of fuel blends, improve vehicle safety, help protect the environment and improve fuel efficiency. Barricade technology was originally developed for engines with a conventional carburetor but is now available for fuel injection applications, which includes 97 percent of vehicles on the road in the U.S. In addition to the release of the new fuel injection hoses, the Barricade line for carbureted automobiles and small-engine/off-highway applications has added two new diameters to provide 96 percent coverage of current standard fuel hose sales. All Barricade products are approved for use with gasoline, diesel, bio-diesel, methanol, ethanol and gasohol fuels, as well as fuel blends.
