Hi,

How does the gas line go from the gas tank forward? (See my pictures)

Gas line goes over the top of the arch along the threshold thru a hole in the scuttle to the fuel pump. I would use copper pipe 1/4" or source a fuel line from Morgan Spares.

Here is how I did it. Used a new continuous chemical resistant flex fuel line from tank to fuel pump. Supported it over rear axle from body frame, and along by the door and firewall. Padding and sill vinyl cover protect it and keep it out of sight. Went through firewall at height of fuel pump inlet.

My car’s gas tank is at the top. I believe the gas line comes out of the top left side and runs along the wheel arch. If this is right, there must be a way to hide the gas line in the top of the arch. I don’t know how it’s supposed to be. Eventually the gas line runs through a brace and down to the floor. I have no idea how it goes from there. (Photo)

You have it right. On the arch cover it with upholstery. On the sill do the same. at the forward end of the sill route the gas line close to the side of the bulkhead and thru a hole in front of the bulkhead. I would use stainless 1/4" pipe. Kit available from Morgan Spares. I would not use plastic or rubber. Gas now has Ethanol in it. Jury still out on these materials.

Newest flex lines are ethanol proof. I came out of tank and drilled a hole in the front tank board ( so it is behind the storage bin trim) and then over the axle, through the angled board and then up the sill. Because it is a flex line the O.D. Makes it awkward to run down the arch as per your red route.

Not to be argumentative but aside from Ethanol the OD is smaller and easy to run with no interference with axles and the like. Actually I used Gates fuel line (5/16"winking smiley on the passenger side (US) similar as your installation as I was using Weber 40mm DCOE carbs and felt I needed a bigger fuel supply. Also carbs on the right side of My DHC. I must replace the Gates fuel line with something that does not deteriorate with ethanol and will look at Your product. But because of the OD suspect I will use a metal fuel line.

BTW: I have had problems with Ethanol on Gates fuel lines. Expensive when not in Your own home but on the road.
