Switch from Flex to standard fuel...
Has anyone swapped out the flex fuel tank for a standard fuel tank? I was told by my mechanic that the fuel pump is bad on my FlexFuel 3.0 (I still want to check fuel lines etc. before I believe him). From Ford it's $800 for the assembly!! What if the problem lies in whatever that canister is on the rear crossmember? I don't want to start throwing parts at the truck until I find the one that fixes the problem. (doesn't start or run and has very low fuel pressure, but runs from auxiliary fuel source)
I called the local junkyard and he had the whole tank and pump assembly for $100. When I got there I was disappointed to see it wasn't a flex fuel set up. Then I was thinking what if I just swap out the whole flex fuel tank for standard fuel tank. It would bypass the whole canister thing.
Any thoughts and/or comments greatly encouraged, thanks.
