  • Fuel Lines for RS2 (ADU)

    I shall embarking on a bit of a refurb for my RS2 in a couple of months and want to get all the bits together before I start, does anyone know if the fuel lines (as a set) are still available?

    I did see them on Audi Tradition a while back and they were in the wrong category! They were very expensive, from memory about £170 per line! I've bought 8mm copper nickel pipe and I'm making up my own set. Doesn't look too difficult and everything will cost less than £100. My whole car is stripped so its fairly easy access. Not sure how you will fair if yours isn't. You might need to cut the pipes where they start to go up into the bulkhead and fit 8mm stainless connectors (as per other threads here). The corrosion is found towards the rear, under the clips.

      If you are buying genuine lines you will need to take the engine out to get them in too

        Found them again. Full set for 292 euro. Not too bad then!

            Are you sure Greg, I have done a Quattro turbo fuel lines before and that being pretty similar I would have thought it would be possible, we had to raise the car on ramps to do it but it worked fine.

              I saw them on Audi Tradition last week and would have preferred a new set rather than used, although they`re in "mint" condition apparently.

                I think these are new old stock hence they describe the condition from storage. Don't think they sell anything 'second hand'.

                  They fit my Avant to so I might just jump in as well. I'm getting cold feed over making up a copy set

                    I don't see a problem making your own fuel lines. Flaring tool is cheap, job itself takes some time but is easy and you can use the tool for brake lines too. Connections are reusable or can be bought new, pipes depends on what is available at your location or what you want - copper, aluminum, steel.

                      Ok, I'll give it a go I've already got the pipe and a flaring tool so no excuse really.

                        from memory, it was a few years back there wasn’t room to manoeuvre the lines in without removing the bonnet at and various other items at the least as it is quite tight round the master cylinder too. I didn’t do it that way in the end. It may be possible but given the price of the lines, fabricating your own is likely the better choice

                          Removing subframe would make fuel lines change easier. Removing engine would hardly add much benefit. It works at least with LHD cars.

                            Two out of three pipes made. A bit like fighting two long snakes in a pit! Unfortunately, one 25ft spool of pipe is 2ft short to make all three so I have ordered another 25ft!
                            I found it a help to tape the new pipe alongside the old so I matched all the bends as best as possible as I went along.
                            Hope it all fits.
