$18 on Amazon.  Nice cast and machined one, not the low end stamped steel 
version.

Never seen them at FLAPS, dealer sells them, though.  Never had to buy one.

 Are they at FLAPS, or stealer, or?
 
 Looks like a removable pex clamp.
 
 Some of the pex clamps can be clamped with a end nipper.

Speaking of fuel lines, I changed the fuel filter on my W220 today.

That in and of itself wasn't a big deal, but it was the first time I 
had worked with the Clik-r style hose clamps.


http://kgs-ind.com/products/other/clic-r/

They're all over the car, and in anticipation of working with them, 
I bought one of the special pliers that are used to release and 
secure them.


While it took me a few minutes to figure out exactly how to release 
them, once I got it the rest were easy.  They were just as simple to 
secure when I was done, too.  All in all it took maybe 10 minutes 
total to swap my fuel filter, if that.

I am trying tyvek fuel line, then yellow stuff for lawnmowers and 
string trimmers, chainsaws, etc.  I don't know yet if it will hold up 
as well as viton, but I didn't want to pay $8 freight for $3 hose 
from mcMaster.  I could not find anyplace local to buy Viton.

 The stuff that Rusty sells is listed as 3.2x1.9mm, or 1/8 ID x a bit more
 than 1/16 wall. You got the right size, but it's possible the barbs cut up
 the inside of the hose when you pulled it off. I don't recall messing with
 anything but throttle linkage to take the valve cover off my 300SD.
