    Rubber fuel hose fixing

    Guys, when securing my copper brake pipe I have used rubber lined P clips, now for the fuel line, I have decided to use the latest ethanol proof rubber hose from CBS. Do they have to be fixed using the same P clips, or can I use an alternative.

    I have used rubber/flexi fuel hose also from tank to carb. I secured mine using the same style rubber clips, every 6-8" or so (a lot closer than IVA requirements)

    I have however after my IVA decided to replace the main run with 10mm copper as i personally think it would be better now. But this is no hardship to do really.

    If i were you i would strongly consider using copper for the fuel line and rubber hose just to the carb and off the fuel tank. Im sure that Mr IVA tester would prefer to see this also. And practicality of fitting copper is a lot easier if still building at chassis stage.

    I certainly second what Tommy-boy said.
