ok that makes sense. next question... lol@dbrannon79 it's in the scrap yard.. I took it out because the liner was flaking apart in it.. I kept finding shiny little flakes in the filter when I'd change it. Pulled the sending unit and looked in tank. It was full of them. I think I posted pics of it inside on another thread.
Securely Strap them down.@dbrannon79 that's a good question..I'm not sure..the other truck is a 2000 5.7l gasser.. it seems like someone once said you can't use a gas tank for diesel.. but that may only be cause of the fuel pump in a gasser.. the pump is shot in it so that wouldn't matter since diesel uses the lift pump not in tank pump.. heck I could probably use a couple 5 gallon fuel cans and just run hoses into them.
For biocide,Goes back to though. What happenes if I clean the tank and change the lines , I don't think cleaning the IP is within my skill set considering how touchy they are.. I'm hoping @jrsavoie will be able to provide info on other biocides to add and how much gas per gallon when I refill the tank to kill this crap..
There are companies that have tank coatings. Not sure how to use them or how they work. If you do have rust in the tank, it might be worth looking into.oh and if the tank had a little rust in it, this is where the fun part comes in lol... make sure you have access to a shop vac, but dry out the tank and add in some small pebble rocks. you and your wife can shake the beegee's out if it then vacuum out the tank though the sender hole then wash and rinse out with a little fresh clean diesel
this won't remove the rust but will break free anything loose in there so it won't get into the filter or lines.
