Razor knife for hoses you don't care about. Fast, quick, dirty. Just be careful of the hose fittings, since the razor knife can eat the plastic ones as easily as the hose.

Hot water, dish soap, heat gun, and pushing help with the hoses you do want to save. Pulling on a hose makes it harder to take off...it's like a chinese finger trap... can't pull on it and get the damn thing to let go.

As for fuel hose, I'd probably be replacing it... that and the head aren't areas that you generally want to skimp on the hose.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
