fuel line pipe is a hose used to transport fuel from one point of the vehicle to another, or from a storage tank to the vehicle. It is usually made of reinforced rubber to prevent splitting and kinking. A fuel hose is also defined as "any hose or pipe used to hold liquid fuel or fuel vapor." This includes all hoses or tubes in the filler neck for connecting double tanks and connecting a carbon tank to the fuel tank. This does not include hoses or pipes routing crankcase steam into the engine inlet or any other hoses or pipes that are open to the atmosphere. Read more about fuel line below.

1. What are the sizes of fuel hose pipe?

Most applications come with a 5/16 inch fuel line, but for many street vehicles and moderate racing applications the 3/8 inch fuel line hose are a good upgrade. High performance applications and racing cars using alcohol will use 1/2 inch fuel tanl pipe. Avoid using rubber wires in your fuel system and route your fuel line pipe as far away from heat sources such as exhaust fumes as possible. Aluminum fuel line work better in low pressure applications, or you can choose from highway blue and black high pressure fuel pipe, or stainless-steel braided fuel hoses. When rerouting fuel line, remember that a 90 degree fit is equal to adding a few feet of line to the fuel system. So, it's best to replace a 90 degree accessory with two 45 degree ones.

2. What are fuel line hose?

A car's fuel pipe, with the engine in the front and the fuel tank in the back, usually runs under the floor, where it is vulnerable to corrosion and knocks. Most of its length is usually made of metal, but different materials are used for different parts, which are connected with various connectors. Sometimes the whole pipe is made of plastic. Sometimes there is a two-pipe system with a supply line and a return line. The fuel pump circulates petrol from the tank and back again. A common single fuel pipe starts at the top or side outlet of the tank and is usually combined with an electric fuel tank delivery unit that controls the fuel gauge. There is a short riser with a filter that goes to the bottom of the tank. The line from the outlet to the fuel pump can be a mechanical pump mounted on the engine, an electric pump mounted on the back of the tank, or an electric pump immersed in the tank. Pumps deliver fuel to carburetors, but there are one or more filters on the road -- often in unexpected places that are difficult to reach. The final portion of the fuel pipe, in the engine compartment, must be flexible to allow the engine to move on its rubber base.


3. What is the sign of a leak in the fuel pipe?

The first sign of a leak in the fuel pipe is usually a strong smell of gasoline. If you smell gasoline at any time, except when you've just filled up the tank, or when you're having trouble starting your car and have already filled the carburetor, you can suspect a leak and look for it. If there is gasoline under the car after the tank is full, check the fuel pipe between the refueling port and the tank port. When gasoline is pumped into a hose, cracks in the hose cause gasoline to leak. Other evidence could be a damp patch or stain under the car. The petrol from the leak flows to part of the car and then dries, leaving a white, chalky trail. Just because the trace is dry, do not assume that the leakage has stopped. Leaks occur only at certain times, such as when the fuel tank is full or the car is leaning in a certain direction.
