Do you change the sealing washers on fuel line?

Wondering if anyone changes the sealing washers on the fuel line. They are not crush washers so in my limited experience as an auto mechanic they do not need to be changed. but figure id ask and see what others did.

So do you change the sealing washers one the fuel line when you remove the tank?

As long as they seal then they're fine, if they leak then replace them.
What do you mean that they are not crush washers? If yours are not then you should replace them with OEM crush washers.

A "sealing" washer is a crush washer - aluminium or copper most likely.
Cars, bikes, trucks, boats, planes, etc - all operate mechanically along the same basic designs.

Ok. Learmed something already. Not sure how often you do work that requires tank removal. But when you do. Have you ever had a problem from reusing? That is if you don't replace them that is

The only time you need remove the tank is to work on the tank itself, or to remove the throttle bodies - most of the time you just prop the tank in place.
I have re-used crush washers on the tank banjos and also on brake banjos with no problems. As I said, if they leak then replace them.
