My LHBS sells all their tubing for .69 cents a foot. I'm looking for co2 hose. 3/16 preferably. Anyone know of a online vendor cheap tubing and shipping. My tank is outside and I have 6 kegs so I'm prob looking to get 50ft or more

If you can live with 1/4", which is what most of us use, Lowes and Home Depot have inexpensive PVC hose.

Edit: the initial link I posted was not for 1/4 ID hose. Fixed now.

Edit 2: Here is 5/16 OD x 3/16 ID at Lowes...

How we'll does 1/4 hose fit on 1/4 mfl barbs. I always heard you should go a size smaller.

I know it will fit obviously. But is smaller better for a tight fit.

A little smaller is better. Lowe's does have 3/16, so you should be okay with 1/4" barbs. As an FYI... 5/16" barbs are the standard size for CO2 and 1/4" for liquid. Obviously, you can use either for either as long as you size your hose appropriately.

I buy 3/16" ID beer line in bulk and use it for both gas and beer.

It would be nice to have line for both. I have the accu flex bev seal ultra line for beer side. Seems it would be a waste on the gas side
