hi folks.

im doing a bit of an experiment here and need to know which way the fuel flows in the lines/rails of my EL XR8.

i can see the two rubber lines that come up into the engine bay, one has a white mounting clip where it meets the chrome finished metal lines and the other has a black clip.

now one of these chrome lines runs on the throttle body side (passenger side) of the engine, the regulator appears to be on this side and then there is another line on the drivers side.

my question is which way does the fuel flow? from the tank to the passenger side around the back of motor and then the return line is on the drivers side? or the other way around?>

thanks

'the other way around'

The fuel flows into the rail, past all the injectors, through the regulator, and back to the tank.
Therefore the fuel line that comes straight from the regulator is the return
