Bleed air from fuel system

What is the proper procedure for removing air from the fuel system? I know the system is supposed to bleed itself, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Hopefully the techs will chime in here.

Also, where is a good dealership in north San Diego county? I would like to get the inductive flash (to replace the buzz flash) but all the dealerships I have gone to are giving me grief about it.

Regards,
Tom

Re: Bleed air from fuel system

If fuel is moving through the system, air will purge.

What makes you think you have air in the fuel system?

Poor mileage, & air at the back of the heads has no where to go. That's why people make regulated returns.

Re: Bleed air from fuel system

The air might get trapped temporarily but it will work its way out. Only way that air would make bad fuel mileage is if there was a leak before the fuel pump and sucked in air.

Re: Bleed air from fuel system

...and aeriated fuel is a little different if that's what it is. But we all deal with that to a point. Some spend a lot of $$$ on Air Dog etc. but I'll say it again, I can't see it being worth the money.

Re: Bleed air from fuel system

A 2 MPG increase would be awesome and really optimistic. Now calculate how much money that saves you over time. How long to recoup the cost of something like an Air Dog? Same deal with tuners, exhaust etc. For some it may be worth it, for most it won't be.
