Hey all

Today I replaced my rear fuel lines. V6 models may be different but for the rear you need around 80cm of 8mm bore hose. Also needed is about 15cm of 12mm bore hose.

Will probably need another 80cm of 8mm bore (5/16) for the engine bay.

My engine bay hoses are significantly cracked after only 5 years and 15000kms. I put new hose in when I bought the car and I'm not impressed at only 5 years out of them. It is worth checking your fuel lines!

When buying hose make sure you use EFI hose, no carb hose! :mad:

Yes I know what you mean. I have a ruptured return line (of all things :confused:), and a previous owner had some work done on the return line before I bought it. It seems Alfa was doing some serious penny pinching at the time (probably still are:mad:).

I had to replace all the fuel hoses under the hood on mine when I got it. It took about 6 feet for everything under the hood.
