Copper nickel for fuel lines.

Postby gumby510 » 08 May 2017 16:32

Hello,

Has anyone on the board used the newish copper nickel hardlines for fuel(I know there oem on some cars now and in europe its your only replacement option for brakes.)
Im doing my fuel system and I want to do hardlines for as much as I can. Id do stainless but there such a pain to flare properly and bend. I just did some of the copper nickel lines for my pops car that had a brake line blow out and the stuff was a dream to work with.

In case it matters its for my efi conversion, cell to inline pump to a bypass regulator to convert to cap pressure for the time being and the return line.

Thanks in advance.

This a good thread about cunifer lines too-- mostly discussing brake lines.
viewtopic.php?f=29&t=26600&hilit=cunifer

Honestly though since this stuff works great for hydraulics, fuel is a total non-issue. Extremely low pressure compared to brake lines, and pretty much the same physical context as far as flexing, abrasion, etc., is concerned. Unless I'm missing something, I'd have zero concerns about using cunifer for fuel lines.

Cheers;
