I think it's a mistake to assume that someone who writes a blog "must know what they're doing".

I tried to fit one of those quick disconnects to my fuel line and cocked it up entirely! Forgot I was dealing with a pumped system and ended up having to fit all new fuel lines using the appropriate pressure rated hose. Mine do look quite a bit heavier duty than the ones in the article but they must know what they're doing. Needed Baldrick's help to get me out of the mess I'd made of the fuel lines so be advised it's not as easy as it first appears!

You would have to adapt what that bog says, it's in American. Here in the UK you would have to find a BSP fitting about the right size. BSP fitting are used all over Europe.

Can you tell me which quick connect   you used, most I have found say not for use with fuel injection

i added a quick disconnect - after i broke the so called quick disconnect originally fitted - broke it at the elbow on the fuel pump cover.

it is not too difficult to the old broken part and replace it it with an new elbow from Gutsibits.

now i leave the connect at the pump alone and use the one i added six inches down the line.
