i just bought fuel line (rubber) at autoparts store, and a bunch of hose clamps for the size of the hose and went and replaced everything, worked out really well. I'm sure your hard lines will be fine so no need to replace those.

yah the NAPA fuel injection fuel line worked great for me. I think the spec sheet they had said it was good to 160psi. (NA has 48psi)

Just make sure its the fuel injection line. You'll know because its expensive.

Way cheaper when bought at Autozone or Pep Boys...

maybe 1/3 the price as Nissan. PS -- Last I recalled the Nissan hosing was $1 per inch (or something crazy like that).

FYI -- Nissan, COZ, etc generally has metric sized hosing (8mm) -- at the car stores you'll need to go with 5/16. I've used both sizes on my Z and both work just fine. Only issue I've found is that 5/16 size is a bit fatter outside (don't know why?) than metric -- so metric sized hose clamps may not work with 5/16 hosing.
