          I replaced my original steel 5/15" line with cupronickel 3/8". I did the bending myself. It is softer than steel or stainless steel so it is easier to work with and is also corrosion resistant. Because I had installed a rear anti-roll (sway) bar which interfered with the original routing of the fuel line, I wanted to bend my own. Cheers!

          I have used them all, SS braided, Nicopp, SS hard line, mild steel hard line, pre-bent and self made. Currently, I bend all my own lines and normally I use mild steel. That said, the pre-bent is pretty decent and is very easy/fast to use. Nicopp is good line but I found that it was difficult to get crisp bends but it is easy and forgiving to work with.

            Stainless all the way with short flex stainless braid connection lines. 1/2 and 1/2 return lines. Then coil over lines for protection from rocks. This is a bastard to do.
