Trying to vapor lock

I just ordered a fan shroud which might help some. It has been getting epic hot here,,,probably 105 to 110 out on the road.

My gas hose goes up and around the back of the AC compressor. It was seriously hot to the touch when my truck tried to quit. I got some wiring loom and put the hose inside that to shield it but I think it needs something more.

What can I get at a place like Lowes that I might wrap the gas hose in to insulate it? Would a stainless covered hose work because I can get that?

Try a heat protection sleeve from DEI. I've used serveral of them on various cars. Fuel lines and clutch cables etc. They work great.
