Min clearance between Heating fule line and hot water pipe?


I am installing water pipes for a new washing machine. I am wondering if I need to maintain any minimum gap between the heating fuel line and hot water copper pipe. Thanks.

not knowing types of fuel line piping nor plumbing piping makes this an unknown
but IMO there should be a true gap of some measure between both pipes to prevent other potentials also such as electrolysis as well as from heat.

In a residential setting, I would imagine that 1" thick code approved insulation for hot water piping would satisfy this if - properly secured to prevent slippage out of place

Peace
