You're the only guy on here I'm aware of that drives his truck more annual miles than I do. So I pay attention to your posts because I may well learn something about operations regarding these 20 year old trucks that are still driven regularly. I had a feeling that at 400k, you had probably had the tank down and performed the internal mods. I didn't know you have a suction side filter, which certainly influences the on-engine filter life and change interval.
A few years ago I drove my 99 from Los Angeles to Reno for Christmas. (With the 58 gal tank, I can go 800+ miles between fuel stops. I usually fuel on the way home, because fuel up there is cheaper than here). I let it sit 2 nights and it cold soaked in single digit temperatures. It fired up no problem, but only made it 1/2 mile and quit. The SoCal summer blend fuel gelled in the tank pick-up and starved the fuel pump. I could hear the on-frame pump running with no fuel in it. (In cold season, I refuel when I arrive, so it has winter blend in it if the temps drop during my stay.)
That's what I thought you meant by "no fuel sound". Cheers.
