Fuel fill (pipe) to (hose) adapters

I have new fuel fills for our sailboat that are 1 1/2" NPT (National Pipe Thread). These, as you probably know, are 1 3/4" O.D. (outside diameter). I need to connect these to 1 1/2" hose to connect to my fuel tanks. Do you know where I can purchase brass barbed fittings that are for 1 1/2" hose that have 1 1/2" (male) NPT (national pipe threads) on the other end? Thanks for your help. Peter

West Marine may carry them, and will probably charge you an arm and a leg. You can get a stainless 1 1/2 male NPTx1 1/2 hose barb fitting at:

About $11.00. I''m sure there are plenty of places where you can get brass as well. Might try your local plumbing supplier.

Bill, thanks for your input. Sometimes I get so one tracked that I can''t get off of it. This is what makes this forum so valuable to me. I have been looking for the "Kingfittings" for a month now but have been looking for them under wrong names in the wrong places. After your message I called several plumbing suppliers in our area with no success. My wife said, "How about Cuesta equipment?" This is a large supplier of a variety of hardware including plumbing supplies. I called them and asked for the part by it''s correct name and the clerk said, "Yes, we carry lots of them!" It turns out the winery industry, which is a large part of the economy in this area, uses tons of them. In addition, I received an email from GO2marine and they carry them also at a much lower price than West Marine. Thanks again for taking the time to help out. Regards, Peter
