popsracer recommends 6"-8"
Manticore recommends 8"-12"

Mine is 8" now, so I'm ok...

Default Now that's a logical man!

Eddie;

I like your way of thinking.

Have you raced your car with the longer pressure line? You WILL notice the difference if you have.

Default Fuel line to the Carb lengths

Jason; (My fingers are tired tonight)

MY OPINION:

If you wrap or run the fuel supply line/tubing next to, around, close to the cylinder head. The heat from the Cylinder Head is going to heat up that fuel and reduce power output.
From past experience, I've found it is better to keep the fuel suppy line as short as possible. On-Road cars are not supposed to be on there lids very often and that would be my only reason for running a longer line.

Hey guys, i just got a fuel filter for my Vone S III, and i have mounted it on the fuel line between the tank and carb.

However i see many cars having theirs betweent he pipe and tank... what good does that do?

I read earlier that it overheats the tank... how? it doesnt seem that it would logically affect anything to me... unless it gets clogged up and restricts fuel flow, thus engine runs leaner??? but thats good right? it means tat it works, and dirt isnt getting into your engine?

popsracer;

I can see ur point in using as short as a fuel line as possible....and you do say that the only reason for running a longer fuel line would be for off road truck.....that is not so.....many racers run long fuel lines, not for the sake of flipping the car on its hood and so it doesnt stall....but some do it to get more time per tank........long fuel line means that the car can hold more fuel in it which means that the car will run longer before having to pit in and refuel


just my $0.02 about that fact....

Mike
