Econoline fuel problem, One tank works better than the other


i would put a fuel gauge on it and check to see if it good or not, your frame pump is what give the engine exactly what it needs. The tank pump only provides fuel to the frame pump. So if the tank supply pump was not working, you would not have any fuel.
