Our aircraft has recently undergone its five yr annual service which includes replacement of fuel and oil hoses.

we noticed that the replacement hoses were  'Nautilus' hoses who are generally used on marine engines, but also permitted I'm told on Microlight aircraft with similar engines.

Question: Are they ok to fit on Rotax 912 ULS ?

    Fuel hoses rated for the correct pressure and ethanol if used in your area should be okay. I guess hoses are different in different parts of the world.

    Marine-grade fuel hose is a lot  heavier than the same inside-diameter hose used in automobiles. If it is Type A-1, it is designed for engine-room spaces and must be able to withstand 2.5 minutes of actual flames!
