Fuel Line Length

May I ask what length of Fuel Line hose should I anticipate on needing?

Any recommendations on brand of Fuel Line to use?

Re: Fuel Line Length

I used Nicopp for most of my line. Very easy to bend. From pump to the Nicopp I had a line made up by Orme Brothers. Great place to have hoses made.

Re: Fuel Line Length

I ordered a 25 feet roll of 3/8 inch NiCopp hard line. I had some left over.

3/8" line is ok for a LSA engine, 580 hp, 60-65 psig fuel pressure. High hp engines and/or low fuel pressure need larger fuel lines.

Money can't buy you happiness but it can buy you car parts which is bout the same thang.

Re: Fuel Line Length

Would this product be acceptable, and would 16' be enough?

Does a return line run all the way from the engine?

Re: Fuel Line Length

So I have decided to go with the hard line from Summit:

With these clips to hold it in place:
