  1. Crud in the fuel won't help!
     
  2. I did have the sustainable tofu, so that’s ok.

  5. If the valve is sticking and you keep having problems then that totally points to dirt being your real problem.

    So the setup goes tank, metal fuel filter, solenoid valve, firewall , fuel pump , carbs.

    Filter first then the solenoid valve does not jam shut with dirt.


    My bus managed to catch fire while cranking for oil pressure once. Turned off the ignition which shut the solenoid valve, put out two small petrol fires with a single 1kg extinguisher, used battery quick releases to isolate melting wiring. Was back on the road the next day after an epic rewire across the top of the engine bay where all the wires had melted.
