All

I'd like to re-route some of the fuel lines on my Perkins 203. Can copper pipe be used for this? Will there be any interaction with the diesel? Will it have a bad effect on the injectors or filters?

Copper will work fine but steel line would be best.

Copper will work but steel holds up better under vibration.

Copper will fatigue and crack (eventually) due to vibration... I use 1/4" steel brake line. Works well, but a little harder to bend.
