I went to NAPA and had them make a fuel line for me. Brought in the old one, they found there right compression fittings and made it for me.

Oh silly me, I thought you asked about brake lines. DOH!


I go to a local hydraulic shop in my area that custom make hoses including steel braided stuff. They don't even charge for the labor, just the hose length and fittings.

You might see if there is a hydraulic fitting place near you. They will have boxes upon boxes of fittings you can at least use to figure out what you need. (pretty sure you just need banjo fittings)

I had them make me two turbo oil lines, feed and return lines with stainless fittings and paid around $30 for both.

Ive not had them make fuel lines for me.


Hydraulic hose and fitting places are usually associated with heavy equipment supply houses.
