No, pretty much worthless on our trucks.

If your OBS is the same as the SD's then that fuse will create a nostart if it's blown.

Mines unhooked too, Don't need it, it may help the fule flow a little better through the filter in really cold temps but I figure the fuel in the tank and lines would gel by then anyway.
