Comments about OMC/Johnson/Evinrude O/B Platinum Fuel Line Assembly, Quick Connect, Female w/Round Post, 6' x 3/8":
If you like the smell of fuel and don't mind it being leaked everywhere instead of used to power your boat, then buy this West Marine Only fuel system. Both male tank fittings, 1 from the kit and 1 purchased separately, have developed leaks out the end of the fitting. Not the sealing O-ring outside, but where the little ball inside the fitting is supposed to seal it off when the mating connector is not attached. Lost a 1/4 of a 6 gal tank this weekend all over the bed of my truck while transporting the tank to the lake. Lost who knows how much last year from my onboard permanent tank into my motor well and then into the water when the fitting for that began to leak. This cheap plastic system is not worth your money and will only end up costing you in leaked fuel and possible fines.
