Re: Fuel lines

On my '91 200q20v, the fuel lines had been replaced from just under the front
heat sheild to fairly far back using copper. The mechanic at the Audi dealer
where I bought the car said it was a good repair. He said that the lines tend
to corrode when water collects under the heat sheild. I hadn't heard of that
