Stainless steel fuel lines for a NAS 110

Seems like both AB and RN are getting 650-750 for a set. Seems crazy for some fuel lines. Any more cost effective options?

I can't say what is right for your needs, but I used the cupronickel tubing from FedHill for my fuel feed. For the return I used the clear nylon. 5/16 and 8mm respectively.
Since I have only barb fittings on the tank, there is a short bit of regular rubber fuel line that connects the tank to the feed. same at the front where it connects to the fuel lift pump. The return line was simply pushed onto the 200 tdi banjo fitting's barb and run back to the tank barb.
If you choose a hard line for the feed, there is very little in the way of AN fittings for 5/16ths. I did buy a line nut that will let me put a NPT adapter on the end, and then use the braided stainless and AN fittings to make the connection to the lift pump, but it was going to cost like $80 for just that short run, so I opted for a buck's worth of rubber hose.

I used the copper nickel line from my mom & pop parts store for fuel on my Tdi RRC - no issues and was easy to work.

The problem I have is that unlike a diesel which runs at very low PSI until the pump, a gas motor runs at higher pressure and I am not comfortable with barbs and clamps near the motor so I need crimped rubber to steel fittings.

I dunno what you are using for fuel delivery at the engine, but the fuel line on the RRC is 5/16. You can cut off the end that has the olive, run down to Ace Hardware and score a new 5/16th olive, and reuse the old nut and new olive on the new hard line to make your rail connection. puke line can be any old fuel resistant schmidt.

What the heck kind of fuel system are you running?
You can get barbed fittings that handle 300psi.

After losing an engine in the lotus due to an oil cooler line failure I am paranoid.
