when you replaced your old stock steel fuel line (high pressure feed), what did you (or would you) use as a replacement?

Though many alternatives exist, I don't want to run high pressure line inside the car, and can't (read shouldn't) run aeroquip socketless hose outside of the car.

Copper work hardens-- why doesn't steel line? alluminum line, steel braid?

Need advice/experience quickly.

my car does not have a steel line installed, and it never did. Additionally, there are no fold tabs under the car that normally hold the fuel line, there wasn't ever a return line on this car.

I am told that this is not the exception, but the rule for earlier cars.

And that, my friend, is why I have to run a line for high pressure fuel.

Ahh, I mistakenly though you had a tii, but you were really looking for input from tii guys ;). Sorry.

I have double annealed stainless line from Summit. I have not bent it up yet, but have done a test. It is bendable without crushing the tube. Just not easy. Only problem I have is the size is a tad bigger than the original tii line.

FWIW - putting on the tabs is pretty easy. I replaced one under my car. Just a few minutes to make, a minute to clean the place it will go, and a couple of seconds to zap it. If you are welderless, I can't imagine it would be much to pay someone to zap them inplace.

I got one off of a later car and used cushioned P clamps with pop rivets sealed with silicone to attach it to the underside of the car. I did investigate other options, such as making an external one and running a steel line inside, but this was the easiest and least time consuming option. It has been working great for the past 4+ years on my EFI.

Good Luck,
