I see your copper, and raise you Kunifer.


A bit overkill for fuel line though. And is it even available in 8mm and 10mm...?
Actually, if I was doing it again and didn't already have some copper in stock, I'd use nylon pipe.


Hardly overkill. It's not much more expensive than copper (like a couple of quid), and doesn't corrode as quickly or work-harden as much. I buy it in 8mm lengths all the time, as we plumb the TVRs out in it.


Ah ok. Only ever seen it before in brake pipe sizes.

There's a high chance of leaks with a joint every 8mm! :D
