    Yeah, thought about that before too. I saw a couple of those "Smart Cars" on my way down here and wondered if I could get one across the front of my trailer. I don't know if I would fit into one or not.

    Maybe Enterprise deserves a call.

    Metal in a fuel sample. No fuel pressure. May just have to replace the fuel pump and filter. Dropping the fuel tanks to check the liners.

    Can't be any worse than it was up in Etown. Hope those injectors did not get fouled.

    Thanks for answering. I imagine you would get hungry from working and I picture you would be camped out and I wasn't sure if the truck has a fridge or how that works like if you bring dried food and cases of water and what not. I hope that the repairing of the truck works out. Has there been any new info on the truck?

    Quite an imagination, VW. No, I don't camp out, have a fridge in the truck, or carry dried foods. I stay in Motels and eat at restaurants or buy food at grocery stores. There are some pretty good microwaveable meals available these days.

    Got the truck back. A day down, my Doctor prescribed a day of rest for my knee anyway, and a new fuel pump and filter and I'm mobile again. So back to moving hives to other yards, going through them, getting syrup, and feeding them.

    Glad you got your truck fixed. How does one go about getting metal in the fuel?

    I have asked that a couple times. The serviceman doesn't think it is significant, needs any worry.

    I suppose it could be the result of the fuel pump failing. I just had never heard of it. I'm guessing that you are up at this hour on a Saturday to work bees. I'm loading up to go to the market. The life of a beekeeper.

    Mark, are you stil driving the 450 with the 6.0? (Or 6. Uh oh as some call it). I still have my 2002 7.3 liter 450 and it was my all time favorite until a couple years ago when it just stopped on me one day. Since then it's been one sensor replacement after another. Now with the newer trucks and their def systems, the cheaper cost of gasoline and the ridiculously high up charge to go diesel, I seriously doubt I would buy another diesel truck.

    the def system is just a result of the gov helping us. sad but true. we also are considering going to gas. we had a ram 3500 4x4 with a 5.9 cummins. best truck we ever had. discontinued to meet gov regulations.
