    That is odd, because the 704 is an extremely reliable regulator.
    Yeah, Gen engines can be a pain due to no pump provision.

    I hear you Bob! But I have a Fuelab Pump on my diesel truck pumping #2 at 65 PSI all day long. Had other pumps fail but this bugger is going strong. I ran it for 3200 miles straight stopping only for 2 short road side/Hwy naps. I'll run my F350 normally 10+ hours at a time until my body can't take it anymore, then let the wife chase grocery's with it. I've run it in super hot conditions here in the desert and in the low teens were the #2 gets thick. It hasn't failed me yet in over 5 years. The truck has 110 gallons of oil onboard and getting it to the motor has not been an issue yet. Is it the best I don't know? It's just after going through some pumps this little bugger has caught my attention! No I don't sell them.

    Not saying there aren't electrics out there that don't work. There are some killer electric pumps, that come with some killer price tag attached to them. I'm saying dollar for dollar, gallon for gallon, lbs for lbs, the mechanicals have them beat. On virtually any electronically controlled fueling system, electric is about your only choice.
    making pressure is as hard as falling out of tree. Moving fuel and making pressure is a different story. I doubt the pump you are using for that diesel is being asked to move 130 GPH while making 65 psi.
    It take about 35 to 40 minutes to burn thru the 55 gallons my boat holds. You better bring a stout electric pump if your going to move that on a constant basis.

    Fuelab does make some nice shit though, and few people recognize that.

    Your right Bob, I'm just under 100GPH, but they do make pumps that will move gas at 200GPH @ 20 psi. The only reason I mentioned this pump was the fact, that like you I've seen many electric pumps fail. Even with the Fuelab in my truck, I keep wondering if this one is going to leave me from my past experiences. It just keeps on running......just had to share. I agree also on costs too!
