I'm looking to redue my fuel lines in my car. I want to go bigger and i'm sick of stabing myself with the braided line and was thinking of going with the push lock line. I was wondering what ppl think of it and has anyone used it. I was going to do from the fuel tank to the engine compartment and all the lines in the engine compartment too. Just wondering if its legal for running at the strip, they say it is but just wondering if anyone had any experience.

thanks,

Pushlock hose is great stuff. With fuel lines I would be extra-careful and also use the crimp-clamps at the ends. They normally only recommend the crimp-clamps when the hose is carrying fluid over 250F but for a fuel line you can never be too careful IMO.

However, I suggest running as much hardline as possible. If it's rubber it will eventually rot.

I use a lot of it, good stuff.
But I don't think I would run it from the tank to the pump unless it is pretty well protected.
I have had it in my dyno room from the shut off for the fuel cell to the pump which is about 10' as the cell is in a separate room & it has been in there for something like 10 years now.
It appears to be as good as the day I put it in but this is a pretty protected environment too,, no sun, heat, weather etc.

BTW, this stuff is rated at 250lbs without a clamp.

I used that stuff on dirt cars for years. I've used it in dry sump plumbing, fuel lines, you name it. Braided is a PITA.

Do it right--use double-wall seamless steel tubing except for short sections of hose at the flex points, or to connect to the tank itself.

I just used it front to rear on my 67. Clamped it every foot, ran it so there is no interference. Stuff is way nicer to use then braided and no blood! Ralph
