300tdi fuel tanks


Recommended Posts


I have a 300tdi with a diesel leak, looking at the top of the tank its coming from one of the lines that run to

the engine.

Its the line which has the 6 bolt flange to fix it to the top of the tank, what is this? is it just a pick up pipe or a pump etc?

Thanks people

300TDi has no in-tank pump, so just the sender, pick-up. and return. Lift pump on the side of the engine to get it from the tank.through the filter, and then to the injector pump, which pressurises it further.

Only filthy, dirty, smelly, bunny-killing V8's have an in-tank pump. (oh, and TD5's of course)
