Can you form your own hose, probably not. That looks like a drain hose, but offhand, I don't recognise it. Take it to the parts store and see if they can find a preformed hose that has the bend and length you, then trim off the rest of it.

Could use two sections of straight hose, along with a pvc elbow.

advance auto parts has that hose listed in their computer. They tried selling me that hose to replace a blown hose that had several bends in it. The expert told me i could cut off one end and splice it onto the other end to complete the bend.

Needless to say i bought the hose from mazdatrix.

you could always cut the good ends off it and bend up some copper tubing.

Whats that hose for? It looks like a fuel line.

If it is a fuel line, just get some appropriately sized steel tubing (brake line kind of stuff) and bend it to fit. Just use a little piece of hose as a coupler with two hose clamps.
