Fuel line details

Hi all

I'm looking at a potential SVO conversion kit for my 94 PS F250

This is an exceptional candidate for conversion due to the 2 fuel tanks.

How are the fuel lines set up with the 2 tanks? Are there two independent fuel lines? Basically, would I be able to modify one fuel line and leave the other alone?

Are there any members on here that have had success with this type of conversion?

Thanks

i have a setup that came with the truck. nothing is changed until the switcher port. there is a coolent headed filter head and a filter. thats all. i am upgrading it soon to a line in line hose (probable aluminum line in the current coolant hoses that go back there) then a heat exchanger in the tank, aluminum pipe wound up or a tranny cooler. ill also be insulating the tank. the setup it came with works great in the summer.

check out the greasecar forum, there are a few home brew setups there for this truck. Brian Miller has a 95 psd with his own design.

It is better to run a larger fuel line (and return) from a plastic tank to near the motor, veg oil does not flow so well unless it is heated to 155-175 degrees. The front/rear tank valve has very tiny ports. Veg oil can react with the steel fuel tanks and cause problems.
