Default Gas/liquid tubing

Forgive me if this question has been asked ad nausea......but what type of tubing is best for CO2 gas from tank to manifold, manifold to corny and beer from corny to tap?
Also, what are the proper lengths of tubing needed for these 3?

DS

The gas line doesn't matter, as long as it fits from the regulator to the "in" disconnects on your keg, it's fine. I use the red gas line, like for air compressors, but you can use beer line if you want.

For the beer line, you need 3/16" beverage line tubing, approximately 10-12' per tap for most cases.

I use Bevflex on both the gas and liquid side. Gas length doesn't matter though I have one line from my manifold that's five feet long so I can pressurize clean kegs outside the keezer. The rest are just long enough to reach their respective keg. All of my beer lines are 3/16" x 10' and pour wonderfully.
