We don't have a small aux diesel, we have a small aux Atomic 4 . Besides: The line isn't copper all the way to the engine. The line running aft from the fuel/water separator/filter changes to a flexible line a little way back, before it leaves the bulkhead, and that short length of flexible line then loops over to the engine.
