Is the Tygon tube found in a hardware store the same as reference here:

They don’t have actual specs available, just the word Tygon.

For those of us in the US, Aircraft Spruce & Specialty is a very good and reliable supplier of Tygon tubing.

There are at least a dozen formulations of "Tygon," some that resist gasoline and ethanol, and some that don't. I don't think there's any way of knowing what your hardware store stocks without visiting them and googling the code printed on the tubing to find its specification.

Fuel grade Tygon is either yellow or smokey.
The other little trap is it comes in different wall thicknesses.
Heavy wall for suction lines & light wall for delivery line
The heavy wall 1/4" id line is fine for motorcycles but standard 2 or 3 layer rubber is a lot cheaper .
Considering the price compared to other materials I would be surprised of a hardwaer store would sell it bulk
