This is what I recomend.

: RPFA-1004 Fass Fuel Pump


Tell us more about your system also. Single tank, two tank. parallel system?????? Make/model of truck, etc.

If memory serves me correctly, the platinum is a "booster" pump, supplying fuel to a stock pump- (94-03 psd)

It's a two tank system, I guess it will be parallel planning on tying in at the heads instead of using factory fp and filter. Leaning towards a dead head with a purge line but haven't ruled out a return either. Got to love the learning curve. I'm planning on mounting my heat exchangers and pump on the left frame rail. I got it planned out from the tank to the motor but just haven't got a clear plan for plumbing into the heads just yet. I looked at the pump you suggested but what about the filter did you purchase a separate heated one or a all in one unit. thanks

Depending on where in the world you live, it may weigh on the advice I give for a filter. Putting a fass under the body with the filter for wvo is not going to work where I live. Its a bit chilly in the winter for nonsence like that. There is significant heat loss at 60 MPH at -20*F. However, your situation may vary.

I like to put the filter and pump in the engine bay where is is a lot warmer in the winter. Also, it is out of the slop, salt, and sand which are common in the winter here.

Your situation may vary.

I'm in the upstate of south Carolina so I've never seen -20 usually around 20 is the coldest except on the rare occasion. I couldn't find a heat exchanger I liked so I was going to run a 1/2" ss tube in a 1" galvanized pipe and wrap it in pipe insulation. Ill need to do a little work on the compression fittings but its an 01 CC LB so it could be 6' long if need be. I was going to fab a sheet metal box to cover the pump and filter to protect them from stuff kicked up by the tires like rocks, opossums, and such. It's not like I have a tendency to over do things. But mounting in the engine bay makes sense then my exchanger will be the only thing on the rail. Then it could be 10' long

Just dont use galvanized for anything that touches WVO. You will get Poly fast.
Only metals recommended for WVO are aluminum, SS, and steel that has some kind of coating. Black iron pipe will still poly but MUCH less than galvanized. The amount of oxygen plays a big factor too.

I met a guy that spent a long time on his filtering (dieselcraft style) setup, looks almost manufactured. But he used galvanized and he had plugged pipes within 1000 gallons of processing.

Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
If you can't eat it or play with it, just pee on it and walk away.

I use a FASS HD
And I clocked about 2k miles on it before I started having issues.
It has a 100% LIFETIME warranty (yes 100% I called and verified several times)

I just have been so wrapped up in work that I have not wrenched on the truck in awhile.

My AirDogII has been running FLAWLESSLY on D2 for a ton of miles so far, but I don't use it for wvo, just my D2.

Low pressure, and squawking pretty bad.
Maybe the output is clogged or kinked, or the pressure relief is stuck in the open or closed?

What ever it is it's awfully loud, and gets quiet if I loosen the filter (as in to prime it)
