Your vehicles fuel system delivers fuel from the gas tank to the gas filters and then onto the fuel injectors. A pressure regulator controls the fuel pressure allowing the best performance at varying speeds and load conditions for your car or truck. Many modern day vehicles return unused fuel to the fuel tank to be re-circulated.
There are several factors that determine the wear and tear on your gas tank. Some of these include the quality of fuel you use, the age of your car or truck, your total mileage, general driving conditions, and maintenance history. Warning signs that you may have problems with your fuel system can include poor fuel economy, multiple efforts in starting, and/or the "check engine" light appearing on your dashboard.
Duel gas tanks on many trucks of the Pacific Northwest may cause additional problems. The switching connections between gas tanks may need replacement, but at least in most cases you will still have one gas tank you can depend on. Sometimes gas tanks need serious cleaning which means, boiling them out, resealing and repainting. This something that is done with classic cars as well to restore them.
