That SUV will be in a crusher before it will need a new fuel line of any kind. I am glad my car isn’t in salt all winter.

If auto makers had copper fuel and brake lines, and frames that didn’t rust, they wouldn’t sell as many new cars.

Had to do the same on my old Tahoe. Cut out fuel filter and replaced with in-line with clamps and rubber.

There's an access panel in the floor for getting to the fuel pump. You can see it in your video. You don't have to drop the tank. Great Mitsubishi design.

Only a bad mechanic would replace the part with the same part. The part was a defective design that rusted out. It needs to be designed to never rust. I upgraded it. They would probably install some aftermarket pump that will not last as long as the good OEM on that is in there. This car is still running fine, I have been putting a ton of miles on it latley.

Glad he mentioned the nickel alloy of copper. using regular soft copper can be dangerous, particularly on brake lines as it can crack. Auto mfgs abandoned this almost 100 years ago. Now we have alloys that are rust proof so we can go back to "copper" lines.

They use the steel line to keep costs down when they wouldn’t spend much more if they’d done it right the first time. It’s a way of making extra money but it’s a major inconvenience

Japan does not salt their roads in the winter, which is why so many older Japanese vehicles are prone to rust. They weren't built with export first in mind.

Surprised that Mitsubishi had a mild steel fuel line. The metal portion of fuel line in my 1996 Jeep XJ is stainless. Unfortunately, the other front to rear lines are mild steel so I am replacing them with NiCu.

Reminds me of my GMC Yukon fuel leak. Rusted out lines and required an air hammer to loosen the lock ring on top of the tank. Genius engineers have the fuel pump sitting in a recess on top of the tank so water and salt can sit in there and rust up everything. Lived up to it's General Mess of Crap acronym.

@nikos xois both type of lines actually cost the same, at least for brake lines. Don't know how the price is different for fuel lines, but having them corroded in just 15 years is nuts.

Rusted out because when you lived in an area where there is so much salt on the road for 4-5 months/year this SUV, as per almost every other of his equipment, never been pressure wash under every spring.

@C K yes if all car was from nickel could be better. but nobody could buy it. quality depends on price.and for a factory, that makes 1-2 million cars every small part is to big cost at the end.

He's right, should come from the factory with NiCu lines.

I got the same car, only in Australia its called a Mitsubishi Challenger. Best car i ever had After 250 miles only replaced the radiator and fuel filter. Must say that is the dumbest place to have a fuel filter. Hard to find and hard to get to. Andrew. Show me how to get to the spark plugs. They are hidden somewhere. Iv'e never been able to get to them.

Copper lines are not put on cars or aircraft because the copper becomes brittle and cracks, from vibration(even the pulsations from the pump cause embrittlement), over time. The most common failure point is at the fitting. Copper lines are soft at first, then become hard from twisting, vibration, compression, stretching....etc. Virgin copper lines are too soft and too easily damaged at the final assembly line. A broken part on installation can STOP THE PRODUCTION LINE!!! Fuel injection systems operate at 30psi minimum. Steel lines are also less expensive. Steel lines are also less likely to be damaged during expedition/handling, from mfg. to installation on the assembly line. Multiply that by a couple million ... and you got a lot of money!
WAVETUBE84 - 4 måneder siden
@Andrew Camarata I agree, absolutely. If you look at it from the mass production viewpoint, they are not cost effective. They produce one vehicle every 90 seconds on each assembly line. Copper lines are easily damaged....and there are many lines under a vehicle. And many fittings. That means many possibilities to shut down the assembly line if any is damaged and must be reworked. It's not a perfect world.

You need to have a car wash you can pull into when you get home just to rinse all the salt off from underneath your vehicles, wouldn’t take much to build one using your hot water pressure washer. 👍🏻🇺🇸

Soldering brass to an iron housing is impossible, covering this connection with two-component resin may not withstand the test of time. I made such connections, but over time they leaked, gasoline can escape even a small micro-drill. Time will tell if this connection will be tight.

How did you get solder to stick to steel? I know the new fuel lines are non-ferrous but the fuel pump sending unit plate is steel. That should not have worked.

Dude - you could make a living doing this to 90’s (probably even older) OBS fords for their mid ship tank sending units.. they are IMPOSSIBLE to find when the sending unit stops working. It not even a pump, just the fuel level sensor.
Also - by now you’d think all cars and trucks would come with something designed on the frames to work with lifts to eliminate the possibility of them slipping off ..

You wanna get disgusted - drop and empty a fuel tank out of an old truck.. theres so much shit in there, it’s unbelievable. Why ISNT there a filter BEFORE the tank?? Something stupidly easy to change.. its mind blowing.

I had a '94 Oldsmobile Bravada that had a similar problem (bought it off ebay from New York) I ended up cutting out about a foot of the send & return gas lines and clamping in some Gates rubber fuel hose. the fix worked pretty well for the year or so I had it after that but the vehicle had so many other problems that it just wasn't worth keeping so I just gave it away to charity. undercarriage rust is a huge problem for cars from the northern states - I learned my lesson from that experience.
