Having afew probs with my XH I6 Outback pack ute. Has the two fuel tanks fitted from the factory.
Long involved story that started when i ran out of fuel once on one of the tanks.
Since then it surges under cruise at about 110 in 5th.
Other probs are * Fuel drains back after sitting for a short while requiring extra cranking..or turn the key on and off a couple of times to get the fuel back up to the rail/injectors.
* surges and plays up over about 4500 rpm. Used to rev nice to 5300..
The problems are the same on either tank.

Recent Work : Changed the fuel filter twice ( gen Ford )..
: Checked everywhere for any sign of a leak..none found.
: New injectors.
: New leads and plugs.


The pumps in both tanks run ok when i bridge out the terminal, but once of them has a distinctly slower sound.

I intend to change both pumps .

Are some pumps better than others i should i just go for gen ford ?

The Ford ones are better in my opinion, they are expensive, about $500 each retail. Yes that would be the prob, easy when you have to crank for awhile to get it started. Also check condition of pressure regulator.
