e-fuel questions

To start with. I am a commercial driver now. I haul RVs from Indiana to dealerships. I sprung a fuel leak on the top of the motor. It is getting worse. I have 96 f250. Pretty much stock except for intake exhaust cross over line. The questions I have is. 1. Would swapping to the efuel system be beneficial to me or just stay with the stock system. 2. What does a efuel system cost. 3. How much would one yall charge to install the system if it would benefit the performance. 4. If don't benefit how much to find the leak and fix it. I am currently in Arkansas northbound to Indiana. Then off to California. Oh yeah time is money to me in this business. 5. What kind of time frame would I be looking at to have either one done. Thanks.

this has been discussed many time before but here you go.

1. e fuel is good for even stock injectors.

2. most are thrown together DIY and can be done as cheap or as expensive as you want depending on what quality and features you want $200?-$1000+ . their are alot of options line size, line material (rubber,ss,aluminum), connection type (hosebarb,A/N),clamp type,filters,pump, regulator,sump/pickup.

4. contact a shop and have the truck looked at it should be fairly straight forward to find the leak. its usualy one of the two lines under the bowl in the valley. the feed between the pump and bowl or the return between the rear of the head and the regulator on the bowl

3. as far as having a shop do a e fuel. unless its a performance shop they will probably require you to buy a complete kit which will be expensive. and they will offer no warranty on larbor and will probably mark up the labor quite a bit. from the sound of it your not up to doing it yourself so unless you can find someone you trust to gather the parts and install correctly. the last option would be to find a diesel performance shop that can build you one ?

5. "IF" you had all the parts Efuel could be done in a afternoon. and any shop that works on diesel even some that dont specifically, like chain stores. should be able to find the leak and repair it with in a days time.

That exactly, but there are several places that sell a kit and a lot of their retailers should be able to install it, beans I believe makes a kit if you want to contact them, as well as Dieselsite

My fuel leak on top was the crush washer on the banjo bolt for the fuel pump. Never having done that before it took me about one and a half hours to fix. Cheap and easy.
