Manufacturers don't run fuel lines in the "crumple zone" on a unit body (between the rocker and the first hat section floor reinforcement) for fear of having those lines rupture during a side impact. Further inboard is better with the centerline being the absolute best (if there is no propshaft). The positioning of the lines get verified with crash testing.
