Fuel pipe fittings?

Is it true that what I'm told, that those mysterious objects known as "modern cars" still use nylon pipes? :)

One other reason I went for Kunifer was the fact with the right tool,it can be formed and bent to fit,unlike the nylon type I found.True it’s quite hard to form with the fingers and has to be straightened out first off all.Needless to say,it was fun on my back continuously feeding the long line into place then removing it to check and form😀

Nothing wrong with nylon. Just be careful not to kink it and it will be as good as Kunifer.

There is no point trying to teach a pig to sing. It doesn't work and it annoys the pig.

I have done my project in Kunifer, so I'm not knocking it, just saying that there is no need to worry about the factory fit nylon.
