This entails five simple steps:

  • Disconnect the return line and put it in an empty jug.
  • Disconnect the feed line from the tank and connect to a gas can.
  • Run the pump until gas exits the return.
  • Start/run the engine for about 5 seconds.
  • Disconnect gas can and cap the lines.

Inspecting the system weekly (as well as careful initial installation) is also important for maintaining reliability. Be sure that all electrical components are mounted with the plug facing down to prevent water from gathering in the connector. Inspect all wiring weekly for loose, bad, or corroded connections. Pay special attention to the switches. You will also want to clean and inspect the primary fuel filter weekly.
