Default new oil line and fuel line?

I want to replace the oil line and possibly fuel line on my 06 F7 EFI. Anything special I need or just regular fuel line in the correct size. I assume the oil line can just be any line rated for fuel? Thought I read once that the fuel line needed to be really high pressure on the EFIs.

Make sure you bleed your oil pump after you change the oil line.

You can also fill the oil tank right full, if you fill it slowly it will mostly run in and fill the oil line, but it will have some bubbles in it. Then you start the sled and reach down to grab the oil pump linkage with a hooked tool, hold the pump wide open as the sled idles and the bumbles will clear themselves in a minute or two. To be safe, you could also put some premix fuel in the tank before you do this. In many cases, it's easier than trying to get the pump to bleed through the tiny screw

does the oil line need to be anything special. I found clear tubing but nothing clear that was technically certified for gas/oil. I'm sure I could if I went to a small engine shop or something but nothing at the 2 stops I made.

It should be Motorsport related hose. If you just used random stuff from Lowes, it could IMO, deteriorate or just fail in general from the heat and chemicals
