Default long fuel line?

ok i seen some photos with the fuel line being long and they wrap it around the tank? does that go to the tank to the crab or tank to the pipe? does it help it any way?

well if its from the tank to the carb, a longer fuel line will give you a little more run time and it will keep the engine running while the car is upside down. If its from the tank to the pipe, a longer fuel line will give a more consistant pressure to the fuel tank. a shorter line will make the pressure a little erratic. Also remember though that too long is not good either.
