Thinking of going with steel braided fuel lines.....

Found this on Amazon. Figured I'd use it in replacement of rubber line from pump to filter to end of dual feed....I plant to go back plastic filter since I learned glass can break....Good idea ???? Suggestions??? What else might I need???

That's a carb line with a steel cosmetic sleeve. Notice the worm drive clamps.

It just looks pretty, same function and rating as regular fuel line. (carbed)

Ok....thanx for info. I'm just wanting to secure fuel line away from heat and breakage. I plan on ditching glass filter and going with filter between tank and pump away from engine compartment. Straight line to carb.

Use a 1990-1994 Dodge Caravan Fuel filter

Re: Thinking of going with steel braided fuel lines.....

If you’re looking for a bit more protection for the fuel line itself, I would use EFI rated hose and EFI hose clamps. You can also purchase Fire Sleeve to slip over the line, I think 3 feet runs about $30 on Summit. I use this whenever I have to run rubber fuel hose near any engine component.
