I need a little help with my fuel lines. I'm using 3/8 aluminum for the feed line, and 5/16 nylon for the return

the fuel rail side is done, and I'm wanting to adapt the other end to use quick disconnect

still have the stock hoses on the fuel filter and coming off the tank for the return line (the ones with female threaded ends). do they make adapters for those to convert it to quick disconnect?

I used these on my project to connect the nylon line to the metal line. They are available in different sizes. Dorman has a large selection of quick disconnects.

dont buy any I have these at work and I can grab you one. I question how safe they are for fuel tho, we use them for air lines on the roll lifts on the machines we build. I am not so sure they would hold up to fuel over time and being that close to the exhaust i would worry. We have some stainless steel ones too but again I am not so sure the o rings in them are fuel proof. Call me tomorrow at lunch time and I will grab a few I need to know what size.

I was told by one of the tech guys at Dorman that these can be used for fuel. I've been running two of them all summer without any issues.
