    S2 Fuel Pipes + Fuel Pressure?

    Hi,
    i have fitted new 8mm copper fuel lines to a friends 1994 2.2L S2 (220bhp).
    The steel pipes were in bad shape so they have to be replaced before the MOT. The problem i am having is that the rubber section with the banjo conection for the fuel filter outlet pipe is knackered and can't be re-used.
    I looked into getting some fittings from Speed Flow, but they were wanting 65 for a banjo fitting, small section of braided pipe and a coupling.

    I can get a banjo fitting with a hose tail, some high pressure fuel hose and some hose clamps for a couple of quid, but i can't find out what fuel pressure is running through the main fuel pipe from the tank to the engine.
    I am assuming that it will be running 3-4 Bar, like most cars, but i would like to know the correct pressure before i proceed with the cheap option as i don't want it going horribly wrong on me.
