I buy Tygon tubing at the hardware store for carb vent hoses. It’s been awhile since I had to buy any but it’s not that expensive.

You can also use automotive vacuum hose.

you can use aquarium tubing on them also, and it's extremely cheap.

Make sure that whet ever you use that it is resistant to gas (or in Rich’s case, rocket fuel ;) ). Soak a small piece in some gas to see if it softens, gets gooey, or hardens.

just take the old one to a parts store and they'll cut you a piece, probably costs about a buck.
