    Fuel line length

    Hey guys was wondering if having shorter fuel lines makes a difference instead of having long lines?

    That's kind of what I was thinking.. but I didn't know if it would affect tuning at all or not

    The reason the fuel line is that long is so when you truck flips over it doesn't run out of fuel. Having a shorter line with make it die every time it flips over.

    That's also a benefit of having an inline fuel filter as well...

    I prefer both just in case that turn Marshall doesn't see me as I am in the corner upside down on the track...

    After reading I think there are several benefits to having a GOOD six inches of fuel line. #1 the obvious, more time to flip truck over. #2 The fuel will cool down a little more. Also having about six inches of fuel line on pipe will help maintain fuel pressure in the tank. I fund the above mention VERY important. To help keep trash out of tank consider using a fuel filter.
