Here you go.....

Ill be 100% straight up with you. This is my experience with the FASS for my 2001 Dodge.

Fuel mileage....i personally didn’t see any increase...but i do have a heavy foot some times. Some say they see up to 1-2 MPG. We have seen Class 8 trucks pick up .25-.50 MPG average and gain a gear in the hills.

My truck idled noticeable smoother. So much so my wife noticed! (I have never been so proud in my life!)

Throttle response was a bit snapper. Not life changing...but you know how your truck runs on a cool day? Kinda like that. Just enough to notice.

You will benefit with the air being filter out due to the dead headed fuel rail that the PSD has.

We are currently working on a full replacement pump for the Ford's. It will by-pass the high pressure pump on the frame rail completely. Right now the current kits feed into the stock pump.

You also get filters that can last 60,000+ miles depending on fuel condition.

Read on our web site. We have a few more things on there that explain it a bit more....

I have been working here for 4 months.....i have had my FASS system almost 3 years...........

Dan I have only ever seen the FASS system available for the 99 and up powerstrokes, however I have a 95 would the system work for mine or is the setup too different to work right?

Yes. I have talked to some that have custom installed a FASS on a 1st gen PSD. BUT they did also say it was somewhat of a headache. The Pressure pump is in the engine valley, so space is tight. We don’t offer a kit due to the lack of demand for the truck. BUT that is not to say that a 99-04 kit could not be made to work with some end user engineering. Might even be able to do a regulated return setup by supplying fuel from the back to the head to the fnt….and regulating the return flow……I have heard of some trying this. On the newer PSD’s…..we have a pump that can push 70 PSI at 90 GPH….that should do that trick…….

i have had a fass on my truck for about 2 years now, and i noticed a differance on starting, and it runs a tad quiter. the only problem that i have had is that we get a lot of snow here and they salt the crap out of the read. it gets into the brushes, and carodes them, i had this happen twice , and then the fuel pump stops working, so if you have this problem, put a dab of silicone over the brush caps, and that seamed to do the trick..

also where can i get new filters, they are looking verry rusty, and i would like to buy new ones, before they rot off and leave me stranded
