Fuel Pipes

Hi guys, more info needed please.
I noticed the other day that one of my fuel pipes is corroded (the fuel is kinda seeping through the perforations like a Tetley teabag).
It's one of the pipes that go up behind the bulkhead. This pipe is connected at both ends by rubber tubing, one to the "main" pipe to the tank, and the other to the fuel rail or a return from the pressure valve.
My question is.....can I replace the pipe with just rubber fuel hose. I thought about pressure etc. but as there is already rubber bits in the line this shouldn't be a problem...right ???

should be ok for a small run but if you want to do it all just buy a 25ft roll of copper pipe....its quite cheap...(i think)

Marlon think the cheapest option is to buy some of that 8mm copper pipe they use for central heating its ideal stuff

Or you can get metal fuel pipe from most dealers we have a 10 metre roll of it at work i could chop a bit off if you let me know how much you want and post you some think its 8mm diameter but can check on Monday if you want wink

Cheers guys, it's about 2 feet at most. I've got copper pipe here and 8mm fuel hose so I'm sorted.
Just wanted to make sure there wasn't a reason Alfa want 30 for 2 feet of pipe eek!
