Where to purchase Generator Fuel Pickup tube?

I've gotten tired of the generator running out of fuel with almost a half tank remaining. After doing some research here, it appears that many have acquired a "cut-to-fit" replacement tube and made it slightly longer to use more of the 100 gallon fuel tank.

I talked to Monaco, and they don't carry this replacement fuel pickup tube anymore. They gave me the part number DTAC 18.09, and even the phone number of the Cummins dealer they said they used to buy it from. I've tried 2 Cummins dealers now, and neither knows anything about this part.

Anybody have any information on this mysterious part? If I could get an I.D. measurement from someone who's already done this upgrade, I figure I should be able to get to a local hose supplier and get some appropriate "diesel friendly" tube or hose to make my own lengthened fuel pickup.

I'm obviously trying to keep from tearing into my own tank until I have a suitable replacement.

Any ideas?

On mine it is just a piece of 1/4 copper tubing. Pull your old one and add a few inches with some couplers from the hardware store.
