|1jeeplvr||Ive heard about this mod & since I have to drop the tank to install my skid I am going to do it.I plan on getting a new fuel pump since mine has 140k sooo I will need to get a 19 gal sending unit,correct.|

|Blacksurt||Glad you got it going...the "extra 4 gallons" comes in handy for sure.|

Last night I have the new sending unit in and have the tank jacked up to about the point where I can connect the fuel lines again and the electric plug to the fuel pump. I grab the fuel pump cable from the new sending unit and the old cable leading to the front of the Jeep and I literally almost crap my pants. THE BRAND NEW OMIX-ADA UNIT HAS A FEMALE ELECTRICAL LEAD. The OEM unit has a male lead and the wiring harness going to the front of the engine has a female lead. WTF!
I keep my cool and cut off the old cable attached to the old sending unit, cut, crimp, and solder the old sending unit male lead to the new sending unt and thankfully everything appears to be running.
I plan to send a complaint to Amazon about the pump (the one I bought is sold by Amazon). Talk about a manufacturer defect!

PLEASE HELP. I am in the middle of this mod and managed to break the two plastic clips on the top of the fuel sending unit that are used to clamp down the fuel pressure regulator. Can I do without clamping the fuel pressure regulator down and just reinstall everything or will the Jeep not run correctly? Need help quickly bc my jeep is sitting in the garage completely disassembled.

|Blacksurt||I replaced the sending unit alone on mine, dealer about 30 bucks....and it came with a new gas tank seal ring. As far as the 15/19 sending unit I don't know if they are interchangeable.|

Digging this thread back up because I'm having a gauge/sender issue.
Can't I just get the pump/sender for the 19 gallon tank from a 4.0 model and install it in my SE?
I ask because I suspect my sender is shot, and if removing it and cleaning it up doesn't fix it, I'll replace it anyway.
I'm guessing that since all TJs have the same tank, the fue pump/sending unit is the same except for the longer neck/vacuum tubes, right?
And just to clarify, I have to replace both because the pump and sender are all one unit, right?

|1slo_CR||On my 06 Dodge I added a vent to the highest point on the tank and put a "T" in the factory vent tube. Its only a 35 gal factory, after the new vent its 39.5 gal. And when filling, it doesnt pop off the gun its actually full!|

That's a cool free mod! I never knew about this one. Maybe someday I'll do it haha.
I think you are a natural artist. Hahahah

The tubes themselves do not take up 4 gallons of space. It has to do with when and how the nozzle gets tripped to shut off. You can "milk" the extra 4 gallons but it takes more time to get the last 4 gallons in than it does for the previous 15.
Here is the type of cutter I use to cut the tubes. No mess and makes very quick work in one snip per tube.

I know my jeep will take 18.2 gallons with out changing anything and those two hoses are still in place (98). I believe the 4 cylinders came with the 15 and the 6's came with the 19.
I believe by shortening it, because it is on an angle you raise the point where the fuel starts to cover the vent hole, which i believe is part of what trips the gas nozzel off.
You could also try parking on a slight incline so the passenger side is lower than the drivers side...

|Mike_3303||I know ive hear of this mod before but i just dont see how removing a tube or two will free up that much room fro an extra 4 gallons or so. oh and by the way, love your stick figure drawing lol|
|05-24-2011 10:03 PM|
|Blacksurt||That is what the mod is for, they are all 19 gal tanks. My base model came with a "15 gallon" you have to cut the tubes in order to fill to 19 gallons. You had to pay extra for the "19 Gallon tank".|
|05-24-2011 09:41 PM|
|AzTJ||You do know that they are 19gal right? At least my '97 is from the factory...|

Here is an artists rendition of the mod.

|Double_Trouble||Wish you'd do it again and take some pictures - I'd love to do this.|

|Ggg||Glad this benefited you. Ford diesel trucks have the same issue and this mod is commonly called a "harpoon mod". Most of us use PVC cutters to cut the fill and vent tube as close to flush as we can. The PVC cutter uses a large razor blade to make a smooth cut so no saw dust, burs, or shavings to deal with.|
