Upgrading the return fuel line - connection at the tank


Jul 2, 2007
I have upgraded the return line to a -6. I got all of the connection hardware to connect to the bottom of he reg, I used the Teflon lined braided from the regulator back to the tank. Currently I have it connected in to the rubber hose that goes over the axle.
The question I have is how are folk handling the short piece of steel line that sits on top of the tank. That would still be a point of restriction, would it not.
Are you connecting the replacement braided line directly to the barb on the tank hanger?

Let me know your thoughts - I appreciate your good ideas and help.
