Mechanical Fuel Injection Hose

I've got to change out the fuel injection hose on my 73 450SL. I've heard that I can't use "normal" fuel line. Can someone tell me if I do need special fuel injection hose for the mechanical fuel injection system on the 450, and if so, point me to a source where I can buy it (and what to buy)?
Thanks!

Steve

I think that car uses D-Jet, an early EFI, not the CIS FI. In any event, you need to use EFI hose which has an interior lining to handle the extra pressure.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
