Def issues and fuel pump issues? Def is no problem but some folks are against it because they don't understand it. How hard is it to pour some in every 2000 to 5000 miles? The fuel pump issues are...

I have to disagree on how the tanks fail. When the tank is not supported on the bottom, it sags to the point of failing at it's weakest point due to deformation. There is no way to pressureize our...

That's my bet, a two piece tank. Keystone installs these tanks not in accordance to the manufacturers recommendation. Search the forum and you'll find plenty on this subject.
