Fuel line connectors

Forgive me if this has been covered a billion times but Iím struggling to find an answer...

I have a 2020 Suzi DF6, interested to know if itís a unique Suzuki fuel connector on the front of the outboard or if itís common to other brands.

And more generally, which outboard brands share the same fuel connector? Perhaps there is a list somewhere?!

Iím aware that this may be a complicated question which depends on exact models and years... but perhaps itís not complicated?

Cheers in advance!

Best,
G

Not sure if the Suzuki ones are unique or not, but I bought a Suzuki female end to make up a fuel line from Seamark Nunn. It was specified as a Suzuki fitting, it didnít list as fitting any other makes.

No... not at all... just buy an OE one for your OB make. Some will roughly fit for example my used Yamaha 15 came with a Quicksilver tank and a Mariner connector which would push and clip on my Yamaha but was loose.

But pulling in air at that point is not ideal so just get the right one.

Oh absolutely! Not one for that kind of bodging.

But if it turned out that, say, tohatsu and Suzuki had exactly the same fittings it might be something to consider when looking for an additional motor. Would be handy if things were interchangeable.

But it sounds like every manufacturerís connectors are unique so not a factor to worry about.

Iím just a sucker for ease, simplicity and reducing clutter!
