Fuel Cell Problems

Ok guys i have a 98 Ranger with a 3.0L. Anyways i just built a flatbed and put on a fuel cell. i am running a Bosch inline fuel pump rated for 44psi the gallons per hour for the pump are 33.02. The stock fuel system is set up for 30-40psi. The stock fuel pressure regulator is made for 39.5psi. The problem is that i am using way too much fuel. I tested the fuel pressure at the fuel rail and it was 51psi then a couple of days later i tested it and it was over 100psi! Yet the truck starts a little hard but idols and revs fine. I am stumped on what it could be. I would really like to fix this on the cheap! I have asked on a couple of other forums with no help so i am hoping you guys can help me.

i have already searched a bit on here and i have read the Fuel Cell how to thread but i am not running a standard racing type fuel cell. It is more of a reserve style tank. It came out of a boat lol but it was free and it will work just the same.

Thanks in advance!

If the system has a fuel return line it is probably plugged.Or you have a faulty regulator.
