I'm replacing my diesel fuel tank for my Volvo Penta 2002 on my sailboat. It appears I need to get a new length fuel line to mate with the new tank. It's a 5/16" ID fuel line. I believe that the ends of the new fuel line will need new fittings? How and where is the best place to get the fittings on the new fuel line installed? I live in the Seattle area.
Also the new tank has a separate vent line. Where is the best place to install the vent line? I assume for a sailboat I should install the end as high on the transom as possible? (The current tank doesn't have a vent line.) Any suggestions and help would be most appreciated. Thanks!

any of your local marinas will have fuel line in stock.

Welcome
Most diesel tanks don't have a vent line, because they constantly circulate fuel from tank to injection pump and back to the tank.

Look for USCG Type A1 fuel line, it's rated for gas and diesel
