It looks like that line and end pictured is a solid fitting.
Yes, solid fitting on the fuel sending unit.

Ok that might be the problem with limited ability to tighten. The only place I'm using this fitting is with a floating/loose fitting on a flared fuel line.

Take a look at the "lip and hole diameter".

Hi Guillaume.
I'm not sure about the sealing capacity with this fitting !
Take your time and after reflection, take the good fitting for your fuel lines :wink:

Little updates, I put informations here for members who want to do the same (start AN lines from OEM fuel sender init).

The 3sx fitting (14x1.5 to -3AN) fit very well (very closer OEM line).

If I had to buy another fitting for the same application, I think I will try the Earls 9894DBHERL (Like LittleEvo have previously written). It will probably be cheaper than 3sx fitting...

Picture 1 : From left side ; OEM fitting , blue fitting from e-bay , from cie torques (Bosch Regulator Swivel Adapter) , and finally the 3sx fitting. Take attention to the hole diameter ; the blue fitting is too big and wont seal properly (I guess..).

Picture 2 : upper left : OEM fitting (hose) , upper right : blue e-bay fitting , lower 3sx fitting

3sx fitting :

Extremepsi sell the good fitting adaptor now : http://www.extremepsi.com/store/product ... 559&page=1

I have drilled to the stock inner hard fuel line size this fitting at home with a drill column, easy and no flow restriction...

Thanks for pics Guillaume :D

I thought the inner diameter looked a little small on that fitting.

they make these now.. just need to make sure u drill in the correct spot to make sure it clears everything.. I drilled where the metal comes up and then had to get a new hanger cause it didnt fit..... best way is to cut it off as flush as possible then file or grind it flat.. center punch then drill the new hole. they have -6 and -8.. i got both for mine.. https://www.extremepsi.com/store/produc ... ctid=31855

Wow I was just looking into this method... I'm curious about the clearance from the tank to the underbody... Will an 8an 90 degree bend fit between the tank and car?
