Silly

Does black rubber fuel hose harbor the black "ick" we all find in our filters at all the wrong times? I'm asking because I just found the long new piece of hose that I shoulda used when we replaced my tank! Duh, and Yall thought I was a smart cookie?

SteveInMD is on a distinguished road
The "black ick" is often biological growth. Without looking at it, it's hard to tell for sure what you are referring to. Using a biocide treatment at every fill-up is important. Once the black ick coats the inside of a tank it can be very hard to effectively clean it out. Sometimes replacing the tank is the best way to go. The same is true for any fuel line, black rubber or otherwise. I'd be sure to use biocide and if you've replaced your tank I'd replace the hose too if possible.
