My guage stopped at 1/4 mark and I ran out of fuel.
Lots of folks are saying to do the common "Hutch" mod to the tank/pick up, I am concerned that some say the inline filter that is supplied with the kit from Strictly Diesel is too fine and can cause pre-mature failure of the pump.
This is the kithttp://www.strictlydiesel.com/p-2662-driven-diesel-fuel-tank-pre-pump-kit.aspx:
Really just trying to see if anyone else has experianced any type of fuel system failure due to using commercially made B99.0 fuel.......
I have been using it in a VERY clean to start with fuel system for 6 months now and my 7.3 really likes it-it is Beef-Tallow based......
DO NOT use a filter like the one they sell in that 'kit'. In fact, my DIY 'hutch mod' cost less than a couple of Happy Meals including the WIX 33972 pre-pump filter. For $170 plus shipping, their 'kit' better include cocktails, lap dances, a 1hr massage AND a happy ending if they want my money.
Here's a link to a write-up, but again - I don't think the primary-type filter before the pump is a good idea (even Bob ended up adding another fuel pump to compensate for what I think is a poor design here...):
(BTW, this will also help with a design flaw in the Greasecar system: In order to use 1 pump for diesel and grease, Greasecar moves the fuel pump from the low point under driver's side door to a high point on top of the engine under the hood, making the pump work harder than it should.)
