Deliver Fuel to the Vp44

Fuel Delivery

As you may know the 2nd Gen Vp44 Equip CTD has its share of fuel delivery problems.

Here is a rough break down of actually what happening on a stock truck.

The factory LP is working its self to death pulling the fuel all the way from the tank and it will stumble.

When it does watch out because the Vp44 is strong enough to pull its own fuel just enough for you to think there is not a problem. With out a fuel pressure gauge you will not know when the LP goes out and the Vp44 will follow it cannot supply its own fuel for long. A fuel pressure gauge should be every 2nd gen owner’s first mod.

A stock LP registers about 10 -12 psi

The LP will go out period! It may be 100,000 miles, but I have heard of people replacing them 6 times in 70,000 miles.


Of course A FP gauge is not a fix. There are many options that will keep all the fuel system components running in the green.

A Pusher Pump

Here is a rough break down of actually what happening on a pusher equip truck.

The pusher can be just a small Carter pump Available at EEP in kit form for your truck.

Or it can be a performance product that also adds additional benefits.
