rubber fuel hose woes #1311121

The flexible rubber hose which goes between the bottom of the gas tank and the hard line heading to fuel pump has failed once again. The most resent one failed in a few months! The 10% alcohol formula of gasoline dissolves it, turning it into mush. I got both of them from a reputable vendor, but apparently their source failed chemistry in school, based on their choice of "rubber."
Has anyone else had this problem?
I am not looking for an original looking hose. I just want some type of flexible fuel line down there which can actually withstand contact with gas (not too much to ask, one would think).
The two ends which I am trying to put a flex line between are 5/16" flared fittings.

If the parts counter has a knowledgeable person, tell em you need fuel line for a (2000 ish of your choice car) with fuel injection. It'll be rated for today's fuel and the higher pressures of a fuel injection system. I've had no issues since using this method of buying fuel hose.

See if this makes sense, a recipe (copied and pasted from an email to a friend a few years ago) for hose similar to original but with reusable ends and better hose.

Here is the catalog with the Barb-Tite or "Push-loc" hose fittings (and hose). These don't need hose clamps.
http://www.eaton.com/ecm/groups/public/@pub/@eaton/@hyd/documents/content/pll_1189.pdf
Page K-6

You need part number 10005B-A05 to make the connection between the steel line and rubber hose.

With original fuel valve you'd also use part number 10005B-B05 to make up a reusable fuel line similar to the non reusable original.

The hose to use is H10005 on page C-2
