I'm building an enduro car and wondered how I'm supposed to run the fuel line. I have a Ford LTD. The cell must be mounted in the trunk, but I'm wondering what line to use and how to get it through the rear firewall securely. I was thinking of drilling a hole and sliding it through, but wondered how to secure it so it isn't flopping around and breaking open against the sheet metal. Any ideas? Thanks.

buy you a stick of conduit, drill hole thru front and rear firewall. it will protect the line.

The stock fuel line is the way to go. Be sure you blow it out first.

don't use the stock one . drill a hole in the front and rear fire wall and run fule line inside a pice of condoit it is cheaper then fule . last year some mud or something bent and pulled the fule line off so we did not finish the race and also lost 50.00 of fule.

Thanks for the help guys! I am using the stock fuel line and put a couple of fuel cell fittings in the rear firewall to get to them. works pretty well without worrying about the firewall cutting into the line. Thanks again.

Does anyone have the setup for the Aeroquip FC300 blue hose? I have 8ft of -6 hose and I'm not sure what fittings I need to route to the fuel pump and how much line I need. Any ideas guys??
