Forum: Fuel System

Equipment that has set for a long period of time can lead to many problems. The age of the fuel can make it unusable or risky to use. The fuel tank can varnish up, contain rust and sediment and most assuredly will have water contamination. At a minimum, water should be drained from the tank and then filled with fresh fuel. Healthy flow should be verified by disconnecting the line at the transfer pump. On the diesels the transfer pump relieve valve should be checked for debris, condition of the valve seat and integrity of the relieve valve spring. The fuel filters should be replaced and the fuel tower cleaned followed by bleeding of air from the fuel injection pumps and injectors. (See process in the Service and Operation Section.)
