fuel lines

I am converting my 88 Bronco over to a 6.9 idi this summer and plan to make and run BD. My fuel lines right now are kinda cobbled and I am gonna rerun them and was wondering if aluminum is safe to use with BD? I ask only because I think I read on here about some metals reacting badly with BD. Thanks for the help.

I doubt that the Bronco's suspension can handle the weight of that diesel.

As I recall in reading a report stainless steel was the least reactive metal and aluminum was next on the list then mild steel. Then ones they "report" as being reactive are copper and brass if I am remembering correctly. But that was mostly looking at VO and polymerization. With BD it is less of a concern, but you will want to replace your rubber lines with something else. viton hose works
