[DML] Re: Fuel tank baffle



Both the terms "low level" and "low fuel warning light on" seem to be 
subject to different interpretation when reading the meter.

My previous D (with John's baffle!) lit the warning at about 3 gln 
left in the tank and the needle pointing to 1/8. When driving the 
tank to engine cutting off, there's still about one and a half gln 
left in the tank (that was also true for the original baffle).
My 6513 (also with John's baffle) starts the warning light at about 
1/3 of a tank. It stays on from some 1/4 tank. When the needle points 
to 0 gln and filling up it only needs some 9-10 gln. Since this car 
came with this baffle I have no reference how low it could go before 
John's baffle had been installed.

What I do know is that a proper set up of John's baffle gives the 
same result as with the original baffle.
I made a minor change to John's baffle: in some of his baffles the 
mounting hole was in the lower cross member. I drilled a hole in the 
upper one. This assures the bottom of the baffle is tighly fixed to 
the bottom of the tank. Since it is smaller, it can be emptied 
quicker. I drilled some small holes at the bottom edge to allow fuel 
to come in even when at low fuel level.
I also assured that the fuel filter is as deep as possible in the 
baffle.
Up to now I have been content with the results, regardless of the 
critisism of some.

Welmoed.
