alright, how does fuel line length affect fuel mileage. cuz i thought the longer the line is, the less power the motor would have so it would have better mileage. i have mine short, is that bad on fuel

Nope, my car is running great! Actually, the fuel line is not that long, at least not longer than the pros are running. The routing might be a little unique to keep it away from the exhaust, but a lot of pros actually go around the fuel tank once comletely before going to the carb...

Rob i don't see why running extra fuel line will make the engine run any diffrent. Once tne engine is primed i don't know how it would know how long the line is.
