Has Anybody used a Fuel sump from xdp

I'm getting an air dog and don't want to drop the tank if I don't have to. I was wondering if anybody has used the fuel sump from xdp. Is it worth the money or just better to drop the tank and do it that way? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Don't get the air dog. They are crap. Many many people have had their pumps leave them stranded. Id go with a aeromotive a1000 pump, get the strictly diesel pre and post pump filter kits. Regulated return.

Cutting a hole in a perfectly good tank.

No benifits over a 5/8" pickup.

Easy to damage.

Prone to leaks.

Not legal in many states.

Expensive to replace your tank later on...

There is nothing really to like.

I have to say I love the sump. If you think about your pump being fed threw a sump is being gravity fed. The pump dosent have to work no where near as hard to pull the fuel up and out out of the tank threw a pick up tube.And with pick up tube you may end up havin the 1/4 tank issue. I'd say a sump is def worth the money. I have and xdp sump in my truck and it does great. And for lift pump I run a fass 200gph . Got a good deal on it

Every sucked a hose out of a tank, then let it lay on the ground... does it stop flowing or does it keep on kicking?

Remove the fuel line from the back of the pump on a factory set up and tell me if you dont get a bath...

I'm simply pointing out the flawed logic...

Daily driven street truck, dont do it.

You may be correct. But that's my logic. And with the sump you don't have to worry with the pump losing prime when fuel tank gets 1/4 tank and fuel is sloshing all around the pick up tube
