Routing Fuel Lines Inside a Compact

Postby nick323ti » Sun Sep 17, 2017 5:56 pm

Can anyone give some advice on the best way to route fuel lines inside the car.

For now I wasn't planning on using the 2 fuel pumps and will initially rely on one (original) fuel pump.

I suppose I just make a couple of holes in the body low down in the rear passenger foot-wells with bulkhead fittings?

Any advice on how to do away with the vapour control devices inside the rear quarter panels? If I keep these is there any advice on what to do with the blue hoses / pipes? I don't really want a lot of hoses / pipes inside the car... :roll:

Thanks Fuzzy

Did you retain the fuel expansion tank and charcoal filer inside the quarter panels and keep the blue hoses, etc?
