Welcome to

That looks like the rusty fuel pipe that folks often have trouble with.

ls yours leaking?

You can source a replacement hard line from Honda or splice in some generic flexi fuel pipe, which will be much cheaper.

Could you recommend a flexi fuel pipe? Also, do you mean just replace the rusty part in the photo? Could I gorilla tape it?

I suggest that you take your car to a garage...

This is a common problem on the 8G Derv. My local garage replaced it with a bit of Aluminium tubing.

Yes he did, I saw another post where the guy had replaced the whole piece from the tank to the engine.
So just got cut off the rusted part and weld an aluminium part onto it?

Fyi, I'm not an engineer lol

I'm not an engineer either but I don't think I'd want to be welding a fuel line!

I think jubilee clips or something similar is the usual solution.

I remember, years ago, watching a guy put in a second fuel tank on a Mini, like the Coopers used to have.

He then set about putting in the Y section fuel line, with fuel dripping everywhere with a fag on !!!

Do I have to do anything special? I obviously will drain off the diesel tank? Anything else?

Just make sure that you have the right sized pipe and a couple of jubilee clips to hand.

You'll need to prime the fuel line once you've done it to. There's a cover on the N/S on the bulkhead where you'll need a coin or something to remove the two big screw heads. Remove the cover and you'll need to keep squeezing the rubber bulb till it goes hard. No double entendres if you please
