Currently automotive industry is struggling for its sustainability to produce Cost effective products with better or same performance. In this study, Fuel return line has been converted from Viton/Hypalon material to Epichlorohydrin based material. In initial phase, technical specifications and material properties has been compared. In later phase, components were developed with modified material and validated at Test bed as well as Vehicle level to understand the material behavior in Real world usage. Further, Test results were compared and results shows that the new material is able to cater Vehicle application requirement in terms of reliability and durability with a good Cost saving.
