Default Fuel lines

I crunched the hard fuel line on my 40 a few weeks ago and I need to replace it. It's no longer available from Toyota, so I figured I can bend and flare a new one.

Question: Can I just use appropriately sized diameter brake line for this? Seems like the same steel and thickness and I haven't found any generic steel "fuel line" locally, only brake line.

Martin- I would think that would be just fine. You can get long lengths of the rubber style tubing... it is reinforced and makes routing it a lot easier. Can you splice in a spot where it is crunched or do you need a totally new piece.

We did a trail repair by splicing in one of the charcoal canister tubes where it the hard line was damaged. It's not in a good place to have a splice, so I would rather just re-do the hardline which will allow me to keep it nice and close to the frame rail.

I'll pick up some brake line tonight and give bending and flaring a try. Thanks!

Martin, I have a set of the fuel lines if you decide you want original stuff.

Thanks Chris! What year are they from?

Here's a pic of the one I need:



It's colored red. It goes along the frame between the fuel tank and fuel filter hoses blue

Thanks Chris. I'm going to try to make one first. Probably cheaper than driving down the hill and back with $4 gallon gas and 13 mpg.
