Default Legal Fuel Line in Colorado

All,

Do any of the Colorado members know if Teflon Fuel Lines (i.e.Aeroquip style) are legal and will pass inspection?

Thanks,
Lou

The initial title inspection is pretty basic. I used nothing but braided steel lines on my car, and they didn't even notice.

There is no recurring inspection for safety and equipment like some states have. And you only need a smog inspection if you live in the Denver area and your car is not registered as a kit car.

Bob,

You used braided steel line exclusively? Is there more flex in the braided lines vs. rigid? I've got a couple of lines to reroute and don't have all the tools for the rigid.

Yup, braided stainless stem to stern. I started out using steel, but I just couldn't get it to bend where I wanted it to go. The front wasn't a big deal. But where I have my fuel filters and and pump mounted required more than that line was willing to give. Running the braided line was a piece of cake, and didn't take long at all. A -6 line will easily make a 6" radius turn.

I considered using a mixture of braided and solid lines. But by the time I bought the extra fittings, the cost was a wash. So I made one solid run from the fuel pump to the engine bay. Same cost, less work, and less oppurtunity for failure.

If I was building a race car I'd probably do the same thing, but use a lighter line than the SS braided. And I'd probably use the push lock lines.
