Does anyone know what the ID hoses are made from? (rodent deterrent related)

My neighbor had her 2021 ICE Mazda in the shop to repair gnawed-on hoses. I hope ours are oil-based & not soy-based so the rodents stay away from my car!

Sorry, I didn't see that. It was just the first Amazon-preferred that I came across as an example.

I have no clue as to why it is not recommended for an EV. Perhaps that ultrasonic frequency range is also used for something in an EV? But then the USA FCC usually does a good job of isolating specific frequency ranges.

This is the one I have in my shed and also used in a prior ICE. It's no longer on Amazon USA (?) but still Amazon UK.

If you scroll down in the Amazon advert, it appears that the reason for rejecting EVs could be the proximity to the 12V battery. They're looking to connect the device directly to the battery.
