Default Between the rails.... fuel rails.

So, who's got the easiest way of getting new fuel line between the rails... seems to me like one of the rails has to come off.

You mean the little section that connects the two rails together at the front? Hose pliers would make that easier if you don't want to take the rails off.

Don't worry about it. Those rails are tougher than they look, just make sure you only put enough pressure on the hose to get a good grip. Feel free to twist and yank until it comes off. You'll likely have to.

I have a vg30e and a vg33e fuel rail collecting dust just in case you have an unplanned disaster.
