My 74 spider's fuel line exits the gas tank at the bottom inside corner then passes about 2" below the exhaust pipe just before the rear muffler. This scares me. I can't seem to find a route that keeps it a good distance from the exhaust. It's an ansa exhaust system that has seen better days and i'm wondering if the stock system has a different curve or any ideas on how to make this safer.

Just below the tailpipe is indeed the correct routing of the fuel line. It should however be sleeved in metal armor. Is it? Or is it just a rubber hose? If just a rubber hose, install a length of 1/2" Greenfield (flexible metallic tubing without the wires) available in the electrical section of your favorite home improvement center.

Yup, it's just rubber gas line. I thought about some electrical conduit also.
But still, if that exhaust ever dropped it would take the gas line and me with it.

They do sell new hangers and if yours are original it's a cheap fix for a lot of peace of mind.
