Fuel sump survey.

Ok, let's here what your opinion or preferences are.

Being that a fuel sump is under the fuel tank and can't be seen without standing on your head. Just about every fuel sump on the market is billet, this gives it a certain bling to the buyer. Cost of the billet sumps start around $160 and up.

What if someone were to come up with a sump that isn't billet. Let's say a flange welded to 3" OD pipe that is capped off and has a welded in bung for the fuel line. Then let's say the selling price was half of the billet sumps.

So, what's your opinion. Spend extra for a billet sump or save cash on a basic sump?

Remember, both sump do the same thing, it's just that the billet sump has bling, and the welded sump is paintable.

My vote would be Beans diesel sump. It has a sediment trap and one bolt install way better than my XDP sump. As for billet or steel I could care less.

My thoughts exactly and a big reason I haven't bought one. Something that simple and no more than what it really is for $160 is crazy just because it's purty! I'm all for it.

I purposely try to find products that aren't fancy. I went with the Dfuser coolant filter because it wasn't billet and didn't have a logo. I'd be more inclined to buy a sump that was strictly functional. I don't care about shiny, just draws attention to me I don't want.

I just put in a Sinister Diesel sump. The bling and the logo ain't me. But you can't really see it and it was given to me. However I am about practicality and like an "industrial" look, so I would chose functionality over style..

Special thanks to Loxdce for helping me get it together...

I have an XDP sump waiting to be installed but I could care less what the sump looks like. To me this is a purely functional piece and it will be out of sight (under the skid plate for me after installing spacers). And I like to save money!

I say function over form. I don't care if it looks good as long as it works. And if you decide to make a few to try out. I think I would like to try it.

Rich, if this is something you're thinking of making I would like to try it out. After a few quarter tank stalls, one killing an injector, a sump moved to the top of my list.

I was asked to make some out of billet for a diesel parts supplier, I just ain't got time.

The diesel parts supplier guy is a great welder, we had a brief text back and forth about bling vs function on a sump. So this thread is to get members opinions of what they prefer, bling with higher cost vs function with money in the pocket.
