Re: [DML] sending units & Houston Special



Welmoed, I don't argue with Bill because we disagree. I'd hope that is obvious?

I'm not a fan of John's baffle, I think that's clear. I guess my problem is without knowing what it's for or how it works, anyone could be forgiven for thinking it's just as good as oem, which it isn't, in my opinion. I have had to track down oem baffles in order to replace his on several occasions because people just throw the original away, and all for saving the cost of a $60 pickup hose and a marginally challenging install.

You don't have to buy it, you can disagree, it's you choise.
Nevertheless I merely state found facts for my 2 DeLoreans.
Filling up to 45 liters (11.89 US Gallon) didn't occur once, but many a time until I decided to fill up sooner to save the pump.
And, I'm not letting you draw me into debating this, alike you and Bill.
