Hey everyone, I’m new here. My fuel line under the car in between the gas tank and fuel filter rusted out and started spraying fuel. Could I just cut the rusted line out and replace it with a rubber hose and hose clamps? I tried looking up where I would even buy the metal fuel line but I can’t find it. Thank you.

I would not do it that way it will eventually leak and if you don't put some kind of flare on the steel line it will probably leak the same day. I made the video below on fuel lines in the description there are links to what you will need, including some steel fuel line I am not sure what size you need. You will need to bend and flare it though. I don't know where you would get pre made line other than a junk yard.
