Diesel Fuel Tank Retrofit

I want to start off right on my 1981 O'Day 34's fuel system. Actually all the systems but the fuel one is the current one of concern.

When I purchased her the fuel tank (30 gal)was leaking. I've had a new one built for her by the original tank manufacturer (Flordia Marine Tanks, nice people). And will install it this weekend.

If you were starting with a new diesel fuel system what would you do besides installing new primary and secondary filters? I have new hoses from the supply and return side of the tank and will also replace the fill and vent hoses.

Are there any additives that I should use initially and continue to use?

Is a truck stop a good source of diesel?

Should I remove the rail to have it boiled out and the injectors tested?
