My 2007 NHRA rule book says: Under General regulation 1.5:

"All fuel tanks, lines, pumps,valves, etc. must be outside of the drivers compartment and within the confines of the frame and/or steel body. Cool cans, fuel-distribution blocks, etc. must be located at least 6 inches forward of the flywheel/bellhousing area on rear-wheel-drive (RWD) vehicles, and on opposite side of fly-wheel/housing area on front-wheel-drive (FWD) vehicles. Fuel pressure gauge isolators, with steel braided line, may be mounted on firewall."

If you are planning on running at an NHRA track I would suggest the safe answer is no.

Does your fuel line have to run to the outside of the frame rail?

Someone was telling me that it had to be to the outside to stay away from the driveshaft incase of failer.

Near as I can tell they just want it out of the tunnel and away from the flywheel area. If you run a braided steel or metal line anywhere from the pump to the carb as long as it isnt in the tunnel you are ok.

Regular steel or aluminum line has to be protected if you run it near the flywheel area.

Plain jane rubber line is frowned upon pretty much everywhere. "12 inches total allowed" So easiest just to stay away from it altogether if possible.

They do have a list of approved woven or woven push lok hoses in the book.

Thank you, I was either going to run aluminum tube or -10 push lok.
