My car has been sitting in storage for a few years and has developed a fuel leak in the pipes underneath the car.
What are the correct fuel lines i need for this as im going to replace all the fuel lines?
Thanks in advance

Admittedly ive done the DIY route before and found getting someone who bends lines all the time does such a tighter/ neater job IMO, depends what you are after. They could size them up for you aswell

Try and look at what burrows did with copper nickel line, he achieved factory fit and better material
Be very fussy how do it, I wouldn't use braided hose, teflon or nylon would be a choice or 8mm copper nickel which fit in factory pipe clips and fairly easy form .
Check your rubber hose too as 70% of hose on market sold for fuel is not correct grade, if hose not marked correct grade or no marks find some that is (most motor factors stock total garbage hose).
Info on rubber pipe grade in search results too (R9 R12 and R10 being submersible) .
To be honest fuel is easier than brakes to replace and has more material options and all it really takes is some care, pipe bending tools/tricks cheap and plentiful and copper nickel 8mm fuel line fairly cheap *DO NOT USE PLAIN COPPER*, that practise should be banned but amazing how many shops still use plain copper even in UK ! .
Nylon used on modern cars and you can buy kits with oem style fittings and fairly cheap and easy work with and more install flexibility vs copper nickel, teflon could go AN fittings and gets lot of motorsport/specialist use but not cheap do well .
