Jordan,

You may want to check and see if your fuel pick-up tube has a screen filter attached at the bottom -- some do, and they invariably cause problems. If there's a screen there, I'd take it off.

Re: Diesel Engine trouble-shooting

I used a fuel polishing and tank cleaning service this past Spring. The fuel is run through filters and then discharged under pressure back into the tank where it dislodges the accumulated solids in the tank, which are then withdrawn out of the tank and into the filters. This was done continuously for nearly three hours.

It should result in clean fuel and a clean tank (and a lighter wallet).
