Im not sure on the size I always pull the old ones off and find the matching size,I will however tell you a good trick for installing new fuel lines on trimmers. Get a fine piece of metal wire about six inches long or so (like mig welding wire). You want to take the end of the new fuel line and with snips cut a 45 degree angle so it kind of comes to a point. Next poke the wire through the end you cut and twist it. Finally use the wire to pull the new line through.

This ONE+ Trimmer has 0.080-Inch twisted line and a 13-Inch cutting width capable of tackling overgrown grass and weeds with ease.
Its adjustable cutting width (25cm or 30cm) with 2mm trimming line makes it ideal for homes with a small-to-medium backyard or garden. This RYOBI line trimmer is lightweight and easy to control.
The RYOBI Premium . 065 in. Twisted Line is compatible with all RYOBI Cordless Auto-feed String Trimmers. This innovative twisted line slices through grass, light brush and weeds with ease.
String trimmer line comes in a range of thicknesses or sizes. For light work, such as trimming grass, 0.065″-0.085″ should be sufficient. For thicker grass and weeds, a line in the 0.085″-0.110″ range will get the job done, and for thicker underbrush, anything thicker than 0.110″ will work.
Light: 0.065- to 0.080-inch line is best for trimming grass around the house and whacking down common lawn weeds from around driveways, walkways and fences. Medium: 0.080 to 0.110-inch line is best for homes with larger lawns, or gardens overgrown with weeds that have tough, heavy stems. Heavy: 0.110-inch and above.
Thicker line withstands more contact, but check with the manufacturer for the right diameter line for your model – using the incorrect line can put excess strain on the motor.
Trimmers don`t all use the same string since most trimmers have a specific range of line sizes or styles that they support. Most household-level trimmers can accommodate line sizes up to 0.085” in diameter. In contrast, more costly or bigger models may often accommodate lines up to . 155”.

How do you get the fuel line connected to the fuel filter nipple on the bottom side of the gas tank on the Ryobi 725r gas trimmer?
You must run the fuel line through the back of the tank and out the filler hole,make your connections,i used a small amount of vaseline to make the connections.Then pull the filter into place,make sure some of the nipple of the filter pokes through,then slide the retainer ring on the hose and force it onto the filter nipple.
Need to replace fuel lines on my Troy Bilt gas hedge trimmer. Where can I get replacement fuel lines… or better yet… what size are the lines and where can I buy a few feet of the lines. Note: I have reviewed the parts assembly and it would seem to indicate I have to replace the entire handle assembly (Part #1) instead of just buying replacement hose(s). Any help to resolve my issue would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance
Replacement fuel lines should be readily available at your local lawnmower repair shop. Your TroyBilt hedger uses fuel line that is 3/32″ (2.4mm) interior dimension, 3/16″ (4.8mm) outside dimension, with a 3/64″ (1.2mm) wall dimension.
Most manufacturers don’t offer replacement line, only fuel tank assemblies. Find your local shop, and try to get the TYGON brand…it is yellow. Tygon lasts the longest. You should be able to buy it by the foot for less than $2 per foot. You will need 2 feet of hose to replace both lines.
Make sure to clean the in-tank filter when replacing hoses.
My trimmer is leaking fuel help – Ryobi 30 Cubic Centimeter Curved Shaft Gas Trimmer
Change your primer bulb and/or fuel lines.
Can not get spool head apart to change line, tried pump pliers, pipe wrench, won’t unscrew!!
If you are sure that it screws on it may be a reverse threaded unit..
Fuel line positions ?
The longest fuel line, which has the filter attached to it, goes to the brass fitting furthest from the primer bulb. The short fuel line goes directly under the primer bulb. Which hole to put it in doesn’t matter if the lines are the same size. Just choose the shortest path for each. However, if the lines are different sizes, then the longest line (smallest in diameter), goes in the smallest hole of the tank.Jim
The machine starts when the primer is full. As soon as the primer has emptied the machine stops.It seems as though no fuel is getting to the carburettor.
That is indeed the case, fuel is not getting to or through the carburetor. Check the fuel line, including the filter in the tank. Then check the carburetor, clean it if necessary, replace the diaphram in the carburetor. The diaphram is also the fuel pump of the carburetor. Be very careful with the small parts including the little spring in the lower end.

Check both ends of shaft, they’re usually a hex or torx head. sometimes the can strip or even snap off. if you find noticable damage replace the shaft
I cannot get the line to feed as it is used up. bumping does no good. the spring is in place. thanks for your help
Did you wind in the new string in the correct direction? The string should be wound in the SAME direction that the head spins.
