fuel line ?

I'm redoing my truck and am about to get new hard fuel line my question is is it better to use stainless steel or aluminum? Also what size should I get I know the stock size is 3/8 feed and 5/16 return but I'm going to be running 238/80 injectors with efuel and don't want to starve them

Best is stainless, but harder to bend and expensive, wouldn't trust aluminum due to the corrosive environment we live in, I used Armour shield brake line from NAPA and bent my own.

Use stainless and get the tubing from your local hydraulic shop. Should be much cheaper than Napa.

I would go stainless down there but there are plenty of guys running rubber hose all the way up with no issues
