Fuel line hose size?

I'm out shopping with the wife and I need to stop and pick up some fuel line hose. What's the standard stock size of the hose used at the fuel pump and tank selection switch.

Thanks

I have read that 5/16" is what they came with.When I redid my nylon line with metal fuel line I measured the line and it was 3/8",so I think it depends on what is stock and what has been change through the years,fuel line is cheap buy both.

3/8" is what i used..... Buy 3/8" brake line instead. It's cheap and lots better. You can bend it and mount it to your frame with metal clamps. (use the ones with rubber over the metal)

When I replaced mine it was 3/8" as well.

Thanks to all who replied. I bought 3/8" and indeed that is what I found when I got home.

Thank you!
