Is any rubber fuel line thats braided considered "steel" or does it have to be braided on the outside? Not sure if I'm asking clearly, but I'm looking at Aeroquip's socketless hose and cant figure out if it would be considered rubber or steel. It has great qualities, but still looks like rubber hose to me (havent seen any in person yet).
Heres how its described by Summit-
Quote:
Aeroquip's AQP Socketless Racing Hose is extremely easy to work with. To connect it to a fitting, all you have to do is slip the hose onto the fitting--it's that simple. You don't even need a wrench. The hose features a special, black textile braid reinforcement, a patented elastomer smooth bore inner tube, and best of all--it's compatible with most fuels, coolants, and oils. With a temperature range of -55 to 300 degrees F and a maximum pressure rating of up to 250 psi, it can handle most plumbing jobs safely and securely.



Do you think this is just asking for trouble with the tech people? Heres a pic of it-

NHRA 2004 Rulebook, General Regulations, page 192, Lines:

All non-OEM fuel lines (including gauge and/or data recorder lines) must be metallic, steel braided, or NHRA-accepted "woven or woven-pushlock"........NHRA-accepted woven or woven-pushlock fuel lines: Aeroquip FC300, FC332; Aeroquip Star Lite 200; AQP Socketless; Earl's Prolite; Gates LOL Plus; Goodridge 536; Goodridge 710; Russell Twist-Loc 836, XRP HS-79; Dayco Imperial Nylo-seal tubing. Contact NHRA for updates. (Danny Gracia, John Miller, Eric Lowe, Pat Cvengros @ 626-914-4761 or fax to technical services @ 626-914-7551)

So, if you can verify that this hose you want to buy is one of those listed above, you're in. If the hose is not in this list, call or fax or buy hose that IS on the list.

According to what you guys have been saying about other tracks though, you will only need the right stuff if you come to Firebird Laughing

smokemup, did a search for 2004 rules at www.nhra.com and came up empty except for rule revisions (changes since the book was printed) and a few other links. Books are available from Summit or Jegs for ten bucks.

I have searched extensively online and came up empty. I'd love to post a copy of it online.
