We’ve已经在这辆车的燃油系统上做了很多介绍，这一集应该涵盖最后一部分。’ve already covered the main tank, the surge tank, soft lines, flex fuel sensors, fuel rail and injectors and this episode is going to cover the 硬 lines that I decided to run from the back to the front.
从长远来看，我尚未决定这是一个好主意还是一个坏主意。显然这里只有两种选择。要么我使用与我相同的编织线’我用在汽车的其余部分，或者我用了“hard”铝线。我决定不使用编织线，因为在某些情况下燃油蒸气可能会渗入软橡胶内胆，因此可能存在一些问题，而我没有’不想冒险在机舱内闻到燃油味。我不太可能成为问题，但我没有’t want to take the risk so I decided to go with a 硬 line instead.Â Â That decision saw much swearing, sweating, even a little crying, 但 we did get there ðŸ™‚
照片使线条看起来像它们’re touching each other and other rubber pipes, 但 in fact they clear quite well.Â Â Â I tried to run fuel coming from the main tank down one side of the tunnel and fuel going back down the other side of the tunnel.
的 LVVTA（小汽车技术协会） 是负责制定规则和流程的机构，我们将需要遵循这些规则和流程才能使我们的车辆合法化’s completed and their rules say that fuel lines must be retained every 300mm so I created points along both sides of the tunnel to be able to clip the 硬 lines to so I could meet the safety requirements.
That part all went reasonably well, 但 the next part was a little more difficult as I couldn’t get easily get to the 硬 line with the pipe bender so I was having to try and remove the pipe to bend it and then putting it back, then marking, then removing it again, wash and repeat till I got it right.Â Â Well, what I thought was right !
从上方可以看到，它看起来很棒……but……. what I failed to take note of was how high the 硬 fuel lines were.Â Â Unfortunately once I put the fuel tank platform in place it hit the new 硬 fuel lines.Â Â Â Rookie mistake !Â Â So I moved the right side water pipe (as you look at it in the pictures) inwards, and moved the 硬 fuel line to the outside so it could get lower.Â Â 的 other 硬 fuel line I re-routed so it went underneath the water pipe and then came back up.
以便’s the whole fuel system done.Â Â One of the 硬 lines isn’完美，因为我不得不对其进行更多的修改’d have liked, 但 when we strip the car down to paint the chassis we will re-make that pipe so for now it’s OK, ugly, 但 functional and it’让我们启动引擎，以便’现在所有重要的事情。
