Crisco, Pam, butter, bacon fat, olive oil all should be ok for all hoses.

Motor oil, grease, silicone spray, suntan oil, vaseline, KY jelly and snott should be good for most any hose also.

Bought a small strap wrench that works wonders with auto hoses, but the hoses have to be dry and oil free. Works on all sizes I've had to remove, although I have not tried the 1 inch and below variety. Always used the twisty turn manhandle method with the small stuff. So if you have some room for the strap wrench, it works well and with out damage to the hose.

Think I bought mine at Harbor Freight... but may have hit the erase button on that one.

Unless a hose is crazy expensive, if I'm going to go to the trobule to remove it, I'm going to replace it with a new one.

I've discovered the hard way that you have to be careful if you slit the hose with a utility knife. I've had a couple of times where I put a nick in the fitting and it leaked after the new hose was installed.

As for tips for removal, I've had success taking a small screwdriver and shoving it in between the hose and the fitting and then rolling it around the hose. It stretches it a bit and breaks the bond. Be careful not to let the screwdriver blade poke through the hose.

As for installing, there's a lubricant that's made for those rubber hubless fitting for cast iron pipe that works for water hose. KY works too. For fuel lines, I use a little 2 stroke oil for lubricant.

Lots of lubricating for fitting on hoses. I was concerned it would keep the fitting lubed and perhaps slip out under pressure, hose clamp or not. Guess that was a bad assumption.
