The DieselRx Fuel Sump can fix what ails a diesel truck's fuel system by eliminating restrictions caused by the draw straw. The sump bowl is connected to the factory fuel suction hose; the sump’s riveted sandwich plates have channels that direct fuel into the bowl so the engine gets the correct amount of fuel regardless of fuel level.

The DieselRx Fuel Sump can fix what ails a diesel truck's fuel system by eliminating restrictions caused by the draw straw. The sump bowl is connected to the factory fuel suction hose; the sump’s riveted sandwich plates have channels that direct fuel into the bowl so the engine gets the correct amount of fuel regardless of fuel level.

The factory fuel system has several issues. One is the fuel delivery method to the engine. The system sucks fuel out of the tank through what’s called a draw straw. Excessive suction leads to wear and tear on the lift pump, making the engine work harder and greatly decreasing lift pump life. Improper draw straw location or a straw that is too short can compound the problem by allowing air into the fuel system.

Then there is quarter tank starvation. This occurs when the fuel level in the tank is low, fuel sloshes away from the pickup, or when driving up and down hills. The tank’s draw straw can’t deliver fuel and begins to suck air. The lift pump then overcompensates as it tries to lift fuel from the tank. In extreme cases, the pump can’t pull any fuel and the engine stalls out.

The DieselRx Fuel Sump can be installed in about an hour without removing the fuel tank. It works on any diesel fuel tank with a flat bottom for mounting the 4.5 inch diameter mounting flange. Stainless steel hardware and necessary fittings are included.
