Does length of hose affect gas pressure?

The Science of Hose Lengths Assuming a best-case scenario – working on flat ground and normal operating conditions – you typically won’t lose much pressure as you increase the length of hose that you use. For instance, on a 3/8-inch hose with a 3 gallon/minute flow, the loss of pressure per 100 feet is about 50 PSI.
