Fuel tank volume

Recommended Posts

The clay is used to check the distance the fuel pick up is off the bottom of the tank.

If the pick up distance is 1" then you are leaving a few gallons of fuel in the tank when you "run out". If the distance is 3/16" then you are really out when the engine quits.

Use the clay to see how far things are, adjust (bend) the pick up tube till the pick up tube is 3/16". Remove the clay and use new gaskets to reinstall the pickup/sender unit.

The pick up has a sock filter on to protect the pump from garbage, but you really need to check that the inside of your tank is clean as a first step before doing anything to your fuel system. The 22RE has a "life time" fuel filter on the engine, but a load of bad fuel will kill it just as fast as it will kill a normal filter. So try to buy fuel from high volume retailers

You will learn a whole new vocabulary if you have to change the EFI filter.
