I need to buy some braided steel fuel line and i looked at summit and it was all in these "AN" sizes... what do I need?

also, can i get away with just using regular hose clamps on these? 50 cents is way better then $4 for the pretty ones.

is there anywere cheaper then summit?

AN sizes are in 16ths of an inch. -6AN is 6/16" (3/8"), -4AN is 4/16" (1/4"), etc. If you don't want to mess with the AN fittings then there is no reason to buy the associated fuel lines (IMO). If you want to use hose clamps just buy fuel injection hose from the auto parts store (if you can find one that sells it--good luck). I'm nos ure that hose clamps will seal the braided steel lines. It all depends on what the liner is made of. If the liner is a soft rubber-like material hose clamps should work, but if it's teflon hose clamps probably won't seal it.

well, here is the deal. the local strip wont alow anymore then 12in of rubber line from the tank to the carb, fuel rail ect... unless it is stock

i want to run a few extra injectors, and to do this i have to tap into the fuel lines. once they have been modifed they must be braided steel lines (unless the total length is under 12 inches)

i would have a small fortune converting it over and using a 4 buck clamp everywhere.

dude dont be a hack. use the an line and fittings. You will buy these once and will out last your life if maintained and kept from exhaust heat. Remember all fighter jets and commercial jets have the army/navy lines and fittings. or the hack laugh at the **** box 80's dodge way that is kinda exceptable on farm equipment would be to run as much hard line as you can bend it nice and double clamp ...
If you can't afford to do it right don't do it at all
call or go to jegs get the parts you need and use the math that was posted earlier to figure what you need:) :)
