Hutch N Harpoon Mod question

Can i use break fluid lines instead of stainless steel tubing for inside the tank?
For some reason s.s. is hard ti find here and if so expensive because no one want to sell a 4' piece. i have to buy 10' And i have to travel to get it. ?

I just did on mine. The factory external fuel lines aren't stainless and mine aren't rusty after 14 years. I doubt very seriously standard steel lines will rust very quickly submersed in diesel fuel in a plastic tank.

I would rccomend touse SS not brake steel brake lines. The brake lines are usually galvanized and that could cause a problem in diesel fluid.
