I just looked up the price of the 3 fuel lines under the hood of the 560SL

107 470 28 75 = $38.50
107 470 37 75 = $50.00
107 470 39 75 = $250.00

107 470 37 75 is the one I absolutely need as it has a bubble. It is the pressure hose and costs 1/5 of the low pressure return line. I will need that return line soon as well because it is starting to chaf. $250.00. wtf:

I replace all of mine on the 80 and none were that high. Something is fishy.

I'm having real difficulty finding fuel lines for my car. Mercedes said they are NLA, I looked online and only one of the lines is available, but it is slightly different.

If you do go ahead and just change the fuel line saving the fittings will you please give the information on what you did. I talked to the hydraulic shop and it seems the metric fuel fittings used on cars is different than that of machinery and their idea was to take the fitting and braise AN fittings on the metric end then use AN SS fuel line. I don't like this idea, but it is a possibility depending on circumstances.

Finally got the new fuel lines at least the 2 relatively cheep ones. As you can see the pressure line was ready to burst. The return was OK but I figured it was just as old as the pressure line. Now there is the one other line I still need to replace, but I just have to refinance my house for that one.
