Default Return fuel tubing length - how to lower pressure in tank

memory blank here

If i remember correctly - a longer line from the tuned pipe to the tank lowers the pressure. I just can't remember.

Lower pressure will give:
- better fuel economic
- better responding engine
- less pressure sensitive engine
The quality of an answer comes with the quality of the question.

You can also stick a fuel filter in the return lie to help lower pressure in the tank.
