    Default What are your thoughts on PTFE lined fuel lines?

    I am I the process of installing my surge thank and the consideration above has come up.
    I was offered some quality E85 compatible rubber lines and being advises not to spend the extra money on the ptfe lines and fittings.

    I will be retaining the factory hard lines inside the car for the time being to keep installation simple.
    Looking for thoughts and recommendations.

    Thank you

    I've had zero issues with E85 compatible rubber. I have been running E85 exclusively in my HPDE car for 3 1/2 years with it.

    Summit braided steel "E85 compatible" fuel lines... (see video link below)
    This is after the car sat for over 2 years, run every month to charge the battery, but E85 sat in the lines for over 2 years.
    This is the second time this has happened.
    I ended up buying higher quality name brand braided, but will have to change them every 2 years or switch to PTFE.
    PTFE requires a different hose end as well.
