Delamination and leakage, injector pump failures and fuel filter problems, the list of diesel fuel tank issues goes on and on.
Whether your repair is covered through warranty, insurance, recall, or not covered at all, fuel tanks issues can be a major headache. Besides, with rising fuel prices, no one wants to waste money on fuel they don't even get to use.
DOUBLE your truck's fuel capacity.
Most diesel trucks tanks range between 75L - 100L tanks but doing a fuel tank upgrade can increase your capacity to almost 200L of fuel.
Sure, it's a mod you can't see from the street but you'll appreciate it when your stops at the pump drop in half.
Servicing and testing diesel fuel injectors is a decently complicated process. Sure, there are a lot of types of diesel fuel injectors but we typically see two main types: mechanical (older) injectors which are less complex and common rail injectors that are more sophisticated.
One important note: common rail injectors can't handle poor quality fuel very well (which can be the source of problems).
We see people upgrade their injectors all the time and then continue running the same diesel they've always run. If you're doing an upgrade, you need to look at upgrading your fuel quality too.
If your engine is smoking or just running rough in general, it might be time bring it in for service. We'll do an inspection and advise you on whether or not you need cleaning, repair, or replacement.
If your truck's diesel filter is regenerating more than usual, it might be time for a service on your fuel injectors. Remember, preventative maintenance is ALWAYS cheaper in the long run. Don't put off a problem you can fix today for a bigger one tomorrow.
No matter what you read on that blog or what your buddy Dave said, it's almost impossible to get the precision and accuracy necessary to test diesel fuel injectors without the right testing equipment.
