Another e-fuel swap w/ questions

I have everything I need to do my e-fuel swap and have a pretty good idea of how everything is supposed to go together, but I have some questions. A friend of mine mentioned there's a possibility of getting air into the fuel lines. This seems like it could be a bad thing. If this is the case, are there ways to prevent it? I'm guessing the filters should be full with fuel. What's the best way to go about doing this? Also, after putting everything together, is there anything else that needs to be done before starting the truck?

Not much you can do to prevent getting air in the system. After you are all installed put a good sized battery charger on the truck and jump the fuel pump to run without the motor for a good 5 minutes. This will push all the air through as best as possible.

In a regulated return setup even if you install the fuel filter dry all you need to do is turn the key on ( so the pump is on) and wait like 20-30 seconds and you can hear all the ear purging out into the rear fuel tank. Than she'll fire right up. No sweat.
