Im currently trying to work out what to do with the fuel tank situation on my 200tdi disco

Ive found a tank with a feed/return and breather so is suitable for diesel. But it needs to be used with an external fuel pump, now what pump would i need to use?

What diesel cars use external fuel pumps and that i can pick up from the scrappers for chips?

On my comp truck i have two tanks a standard 90 main one and reserve to extend the range with out having to carry jerry cans etc..

i just xfer the diesel across to the main tank using an old SU pump (like you would find on a rangy) works fine.

but if you only have the one tank surely the lift pump on the engine will do the job?

Why do you need a pump?

I had a custom tank in my RR bobtail that had feed return and breather and I just connected it up to the fuel lines. Engine ran fine. If you think about it, that is how all 200TDI defenders and Discos are connected - there is no pump in the tank or the lines other than the lift pump on the engine.

If you are interested, I still have the custom tank - 17 gallons, sculpted to sit over the wheel arch on the passenger side HERE
