Re-placing & re-route fuel pipes

My advice is to avoid copper due to work hardening effects. The only way to avoid them is by careful clipping to avoid any vibration at all. So the ideal choice is OEM nylon which you can still buy off the roll. Otherwise Kunifer will do the job. You will need to make a double flare at the ends to ensure a good seal, especially on the injected vehicles.

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

Thanks for the further information Andy do you have any of the OEM nylon and do you know how much I would need accounting for the extra length advised in the other posts .

2m is just enough, costs a few pounds per metre.

1/4" OD return and 5/16" (or 8mm) OD feed
