Yeah I know. but 6.5 Is easier to multiply than 7.29 and I wasn't sure he has a diesel or gas job.

Wait a minute - didn't I tell you to shut up

my short bed chevrolet diesel has a 24gal tank from the factory, but I have a 105 gal tank in the bed to increase my range

I don't know about the 6.7 but the 5.9 is a beyotch to start after its been run dry. It makes no sense to run out with fuel gauges. I've always heard not to run lower than a 1/4 tank for the sake of cooling the fuel pump.

Don't know about cooking the fuel pump - could be. Hope I never have to find out.

Most diesels are a real bear to start if they run out of fuel due to having to re-prime the injectors, pump etc.

Don't bother telling Turbo that - I did but to no avail. See post# 48.

Probably true, but we were dealing with diesels before he was a twinkle in his daddy's eyes.
