This is usually not a problem when converting the car. Usually all rubber hoses that can handle petroleum products will handle alcohol just fine. Most gasoline fuels sold in EU have 5 to 10% alcohol already.

If you have an old car it might be good too look over the fuel hoses anyway to prevent leakage.

If conversion is done by increased fuel pressure, fuel hose and pump can be affected negatively (leakage or pump breakdown), especially if they are 10 years old or so.
