Easiest and least expensive Electric Fuel Conversion

There seems to be many different ways to go about converting to electric fuel. I like the idea of staying with the stock filter and going to an electric fuel pump and regulator loacted in the stock position. Are there good insructions or maybe a reasonably priced kit that would make the conversion to electric fuel as painless as possible?

It would look a lot like this be be MUCH less complicated to install!

Since the factory OBS fuel systems have a two stage mechanical pump with the filter bowl on the low pressure side, you can't use the factory filter in a high pressure electric system (it can't handle 60psi of pressure). Cheers!

I had no idea! Wow!

Thanks for the info.

Does anyone offer a complete electric fuel kit for OBS trucks?

Expect to pay the price with those kits. You can put on together for a whole lot less...

My install will be started as soon as I get into my new house and garage(35x35), just closed yesterday.

I will have approximately $200 into my conversion. Areo reg and a 6.0 pump. Gonna be a deadhead design parallel to my wvo fuel system.

$700 is crazy...

$300 and a days worth of work sounds fine.

$700 and a weeks worth of work is what I am trying to avoid.

I dont see how you can do it with 200-300 dollars without using used parts? New fuel pump-140$, regulated return sys-500, filters-110. All new parts and they are easily obtainable except the regulator.
