'93 IDI non-turbo
I just recently bought a 1993 F250 ext. cab in near perfect condition with 129,xxx. Was owned by an older man since 1993 to pull his fifth wheel camper every so often. I've been driving it for a week now to school, and random errands. I had several questions.
1. When I switch the tank switcher to the front tank, which i know is full of diesel, the gauge doesn't change it's reading, and i'm not sure if it even switches tanks. Could this be a bad switch, or sender??
2. A neighbor who works with diesels regularly suggested that running a quart of tranny fluid through the fuel would clean the injectors and such. Is this a bad idea?
3. Are there any inexpensive mods or adjustments, either to the exhaust or fuel pump/injectors, that could help increase my fuel economy?
I'm fairly new to diesels, and don't know a whole lot. Any help, or any random info. would be very much appreciated. Thanks, Jake.
