Rusted, leaking fuel line 900 1994

1994 940 turbo sedan 97K

I have a fuel leak in the steel line carrying fuel from the tank to the fuel pump. It is due to corrosion. Several other portions of this line in the same area show potential for additional rust through.

The bad portion is tucked up above rear suspension brackets and the exhaust system.

I would like to think that since this line is relatively low pressure (between intank and main fuel pump) I might be able to cut out the bad section and bypass it with fuel hose and clamps.

The OD of this line is about 7/16", or 11.5mm.

Any suggestions on dealing with this problem would be appreciated.
