Hi Eric!


Well, got the first 1030 miles done on the adventure known as Grand Rapids or bust!!!!


Trip so far going well, except for the last 100 miles. Not sure if it is a bad tank of fuel, fuel filter getting plugged, not sure. Truck now has 7300 miles on it, nictane filter on it for last 2000 miles, original OEM fuel filter. Tonight about a half hour after my last fill up, truck got noticeably louder. Both at idle and at speed (60 mph). Sounded more like a F*** 7.3L than a DMAX. After about 50 miles, got better again. I use FPPF at 1.5x with each fill up.


Can marginal fuel cause this? If not, maybe I better try to get up there early tomorrow (if you can squeeze me in to take a look).


Thanks,


John.

John, i didnt read your post till today or I would have thought to ask y ou when you were here. I wish I would have thought about it too, I wanted to see the Nicktane Cat setup
Rats. It sounds like could be some crap fuel. Keep me posted if it reoccurs.
