Truck Repair/fuel problem


teeder wrote at 2015-02-23 15:55:29
I had the same problem. Mine would use all of the fuel out of the right tank but was also adding fuel to other. after checking supply lines over and over, i finally took the return off front of tank that went empty. Plugged some but not all the way shut. I blew air back into the the tank threw the return and looked in tank but was not anything big enough to fish out. So I put line back on and have run over 100k miles and both tanks stay consistent with each other. I bought truck and filled both tanks and drove 400 miles and truck quit. Gauge said full. I got out checked tanks, first one full to cap and other empty. It had pumped a lot of fuel out the breather on left tank. if it wouldnt have been night i may have seen it.

hope this helps.
