Wrapping copper fuel line tubing around heater hoses seems to be the popular method


Not a great idea to use copper for fuel. It will crack from stress and vibration, and leak.

I usually run with a crowd that uses bigger engines, so fuel consumtion is a big issue (you ever pay $2.50/gal on an 8 mpg vehicle?). One thing some of the people I know have tried is putting a little acetone (IIRC 3oz./10gal.)mixed with fuel to reduce surface tension~better "misting". This produced better results with carburated engines because a good, clean fuel injector is actually quite good at atomizing fuel. As far as copper tubing, my brother has been running a soft copper tube as the coolant return line on the turbocharger for his turbo 'stang for over a year.
