I bought an oil filter and a fuel filter. Oil, no problem. Went to change the fuel filter and...no fuel bowl! Fuel hose is run directly from a valve on the frame to what looks like a distribution block in the valley. Just wondering if this is normal. How does the fuel (or WVO if used) get filtered? Is it fine to run like this or can I put a fuel bowl back in?

If you need any other info, please let me know. My van is laid up right now until I find out if I can drive it as is or if I might be hurting it by not having a fuel bowl.
Please post clear pics of the parts otherwise we are just guessing...

yan7gin this is what the fuel system should look like (see pic). now If modification where made to accommodate other type of fuel well I can't answer because I know nothing about bio diesel.

Personally I would reinstall a fuel bowl and use diesel instead of bio. filtering you fuel is a must
