Default Changing fuel line

I would like to change what I believe is the sight tube on my air command seat tank. It will be the clear plastic fuel line on the outside of the tank. The one that is on it now is discolored and it is hard to see how much fuel is on board. What size of fuel line is it and can I just go to the auto parts store and pick it up? Also, I was wondering what people put in the fuel line that floats with the fuel that makes it easier to see how much fuel is in the tank.

Thanks for the help!

Bryan

Brian- It more than likely is 1/4 inch gas line. I have one of those red floaters that work perfectly in my 1/4 line. You can see it from 40 feet away. I ordered mine from Bear Perkins. He has the fuel line also. But I havent had any problem with fuel line bought at true value. I replace it every couple of years so as to keep it real clear. That was with gasoline. So far my line with kerosene hasnt discolored now in almost 2 years.
