The fuel lines on my Toyota Matrix have been bitten into 3 times in the last 4 four months. Toyota uses soy based fuel lines and rodents find the taste irresistible. Is it possible to replace the fuel lines with a non soy based fuel lines?

Yes you could replace the lines, You could also take a hide-a-key holder,drill some holes in it fill it with crushed down moth balls and place under hood, the smell is usually not bad for yourself.

Repalce them with the new high pressure multi fuel hoses, most parts stores have it in stock and don't forget new clamps. Moth balls work, I had several cars at my shop that were just pushed out back and to keep the mice an timber rats out of them I just tossed a couple handfuls of moth balls under the vehicles it sure kept them away.

The last time they had crawled into the engine compartment and before that they bit down by the fuel tank. Any suggestions for underneath the car. Thank you both I will look into the high pressure hoses.

Just use some magnetic key holders stuck under the body especially around the lines or just throw some under the car where you park, it might smell a little but better that then hose and wiring damage, and hope they never get inside and die, what a smell.
