Subject: ADMIN: List downtime scheduled

Saturday night at 8:00pm EST the lists will go down for the switch
to the new list server. All posts to the old lists after this time
will disappear into the bit bucket without a trace. Emails such
as "why aren't my posts getting through" and "why is the list dead"
will be ignored - take this as Fair Warning (Lord, strike that
poor boy down.... sorry Deacon, couldn't resist).

The switch should take a couple of hours but don't count on it.
Once the switch takes place, an email will be sent to all list
members containing subscribe, unsubscribe and posting
instructions. After receiving this email you'll be able to
post.

Subscribe requests to the old server will simply result in an
email containing new subscribe instructions. The web site
and FAQ will be updated to reflect the server change.

Also, no posts prior to downtime will get lost. I'll be
forcing a digest to go out to digest members about 5 minutes
before the shutdown so everyone will get their FTE fix.

Several hundred are on this list. Please don't ask all the
members to email you, I don't think you'd be pleased with
the results. Also, email address harvesting is a big
"must no do" with our lists.

Subject: Filling up Both Tanks

I have a 97 F250 Powerstroke and have a extremely hard time getting the rear tank
to fill from a truck stop nozzle. It fits fine but took almost 20 min to fill the
rear tank and 15 for the front, this was the only place to get diesel for about 50
miles, I have run into this problem a couple of times since when traveling. Took
it too the dealer and they opened up the vent holes and said nothing was wrong. Is
there anything I can do so it will fill faster. All I would like is that I could
put the pump on the slowest setting and have it fill like that. Is this too much
to ask for??

Hi JJ,

Last I heard from you was on the Bronco forum. I too have this problem on a
97 F350 PSD. What good is a large filler hole if you cannot dispense fuel
from a large nozzle? I think this was considered a feature... I also noticed
the rear took longer than the front, hmmm. I actually got the angle of the nozzle
just right on the front and was able to let it run slow, but the back was miserable.

Let the list know if you find a solution.

Regards,
Shawn Utz

Shawn and JJ
I had a similar filler problem on my 91 F350 diesel. But it was only on the front tank.
It turns out it was due to the inner hose (which is the fuel filler hose) sliding off
the metal filler pipe. This meant the fuel was trying to go in the inside hose, but was
also going into the outer hose. The space between the two hoses serves as the vent, so
the fuel was running down the vent and backing up. It's a pain pulling both off and
getting them back on right. I ended up dropping the tank. But after I did I saw how I
could have done it without dropping it. Anyway, getting the hoses on the filler pipe
correctly completely solved the problem. Hope this helps.
