Lubricity lacking in fuel will kill the system, even the injectors... The rattle at low load off the line is metal gates slapping metal seats... A good padding of fuel that has some shear strength to it keeps this from happening to a large degree, which disallows extra fuel seeping past when the gate slaps home and slightly rebounds.. There is a lot of pressure in those rails, and it just simply happens. Thank you, epa, for your ulsd... When sulfur is stripped, so are lubricants, making the fuel extremely dry..

When you get her back up and running, run standidine lubricity formula (purple label) religiously... Use their cetane boost too, in an extra shot if you choose to... But always run a lubricity additive... Standidine is the best I've used, but there may be others out there as good...

You can get it at AutoZone around here.. $10 or so for bottle that'll treat 120gallons... I use whole bottle in my tank+aux tank (110gallons)..

I'm a freak about fuel... I buy from same place I trust unless I absolutely can't.. I have aux tank in bed, an airdog 150 that transfers fuel to the main tank which is controlled by upfitter 2... Upfitter four activates a timer board which powers a normally closed solenoid valve, allowing a quarter tank to pump into main tank... Or, I can power the airdog and let it's return line just filter/polish the aux tank over and over... I know I'm getting clean fuel this way.. to me, it's that big a deal.. don't get me wrong, I love the 1600+ mile highway range, but the real reason is fuel quality...

Of all I've ran, the standydine is the best, but I've yet to try archoil 6200 with ashless two stroke oil... I'm a little afraid of using that, but I know folks who swear by it...

I posted some pics below of my set up.






And one of my truck just for the helluvit... :)



It doubles as my bug out vehicle... :)

between the pump and the solenoid valve in that pic above, there is a white cap... that white cap covers a snap-valved return line... when the airdog encounters resistance above 30 or so psi, the notion is that the engine isn't using it, so it redirects it back to the source through another tap on the source tank...

the tank I purchased has several bungs already available, so I used one of two vent taps on the top of the tank to return fuel to it.

there were several reasons I went with an additional airdog150 on my rig... one was so I could quickly swap the main one (serving as a HFCM/Lift pump) out if it failed and I was far from home- the other is because it filters and separates so well (and shares those same filters with the main ad150).. the next, and not the least, is that plumbing it was SIMPLE, instead of having to introduce another solenoid valve and controls to that valve just for the re-circulation/polishing function, I could just have the one normally closed solenoid valve, and actuate it with a upfitter for a nice and clean cab install.....
