I have a stainless jubilee clip but the grey 5/16 fuel pipe doesn't look to be a very close fit to the nozzle. A matching cable tie, fuel tank side would be even worse.
Yes, the 40 is a permanent fuel supply so the pipe connects to the nozzle with a stainless fuel pipe clamp (or stainless jubilee clip) ........ the pipe is then usually run in the conduit with the other cables etc.
On a 420, most dealers fit the fuel tank under the seat (quicksilver 30L) and the water separator is also fitted under the seat on the helm side.
