AnswerIt has to be proper fuel line hose(printed right on the hose) and double clamp each end with hose clamps....pressure is about 8 lbs...............

Depending on the year and make and engine size, some systems have 60 to 66 psi in that fuel line and adding a hose with clamps is not a good idea.

How do you remove the low pressure side hose of a power steering pump on a 92 Cadillac ElDorado?

You have to remove the clamps then the hose. You have to replace the clamps because you will ruin them when you take them off. Be careful if you're taking off the pump. You may have to remove the pulley to get access to the high pressure line. The metal lines and rubber tubes must be tight against the block. The vibration will wear a hole faster than a fox in a forest fire. The headaches with finding a new metal line are overwhelming. Cadi really blew that design.
