    Totally not what you asked for, but I run a mechanical 12 psi piston pump from THD. Got 150 gallons of WMO but have only run a whopping 5 gal. so far

    I have a 90 W250 and also run THD low pressure piston lift pump. I run a Larry B's liquid filled pressure gauge on the end of the banjo bolt after filter. Gives me some insight into how the filter is doing. I probably have somewhere around 30-50k miles and no issues. I preferred to keep as much as I can mechanical. The hungry diesel sells as a complete kit. The only thing extra I had to buy was a 90° hose barb fitting for the rubber line to the pump.

    Not going electric.

    Running stock diaphragm at the moment with a water separator (Racor copy) on the suction side.

    Intend to go with the piston pump style when I revamp the fuel system. I have a NIB Carter 2ndgen pump I'm going to re-spring for lower pressure.
