Plastic Fuel Filler Neck Material:Gasoline/Diesel

I am trying to find the material options available fuel filler neck for (i) Gasoline and (ii)Diesel applications.
PP,PA6,PA6+GF,PA66, HDPE, PA6+EPDM. I am confused. please help.

Not the last one.

RE: Plastic Fuel Filler Neck Material:Gasoline/Diesel

PE and PP will let gasoline and diesel through and soften. Of the choices PA 6 or PA 6,6 look best due to good mechanicals and oil (petroleum) resistance.

What are the plastic gas cans made from? I've always thought those were HDPE?

It is better to have enough ideas for some of them to be wrong, than to be always right by having no ideas at all.
