    Fuel pipe

    Some advise please. I bought a part built mrk3 Sumo and the previous owner fitted rubber fuel pipe from front to rear on the chassis. Is this IVA compatable or does it have to be steel piping. Regards John

    Usually 8mm copper with appropriate rubber connecting the ends, but if the rubber is good enough for the ends. I would have thought you could have it all rubber?

    Rubber is IVA acceptable if it has the appropriate markings confirming suitability or is accompanied by written confirmation of conformity from the supplier. Older rubber isn’t any good for modern fuel mixes and will break down (melt).
    If it were me I would replace it with copper. Much neater and better job all round.

    If you are buying rubber then get R9, its graded for modern fuels with higher ethanol resisistance.
