    I brought it up as it seems that's what was used as a previous 'repair' in the photo, I think. But yes, aftermarket hard black should be = OEM. Always best to check compatibility, as you did

    So which style would better. The barbed union or the compression union?

    I think both will work, as long as they are installed correctly. I'd prefer brass barbed, tho.

    As an alternative to the compression fittings, there are fittings that just push on and lock, that may work too. I like using them, but I haven't tried against 50 psi fuel.

    I also don't believe the leaking line is pressure since it doesn't go straight to the fuel filter, but past it and farther up. Will double check that when I get home. And check the size.

    Regardless of it's purpose, that photo seems to show fuel exiting under pressure of some sort, no?

    Line repaired. Used 5/16 compression union. Now to find something to cover up those exposed lines.
