316 Fuel Pickup

I replaced all the fuel lines on my JD316 earlier this year. The tractor runs out of gas with 1/4 tank still showing on the gauge. I used about 4-5" of fuel line inside the tank and installed a new pickup screen and check valve. I pulled the tank and pickup hose today and the hose has a 90deg bend in it. There are no kinks,it's a smooth gradual bend. I thought the hose would be laying on the bottom of the tank,but it can't be since the tractor runs out of fuel at 1/4 tank. JD parts does not specify a length, it just says cut from a 10' piece of M62370. Does anyone know how long the hose in the tank should be?

I had to replace mine few weeks ago because the old one was disintegrated.
I put a standard hose for gas but the outside diameter is too big to use the clips.
Also this hose is too rigid and don't stay at the bottom.
In the tank of my gas trimmer they use a small clear/pink hose.
This kind of hose but 1/4" was used in old Ski-Doo and still available at my local dealer at 10 minute from here.
My JD dealer is very far away.
Is it a good alternative?
