All else equal, I'd rather have five extra feet of tubing over one elbow. Tubing is pretty minimal resistance to begin with, nevermind having any noticeable impact on temperatures.

My wife says hose size does matter! But seriously it is minimal fir an extra foot or so as long as it's not 50 feet away or something.
