Customer Question

We are installing a generator set powered by a 4045TF220 JD engine. This engine/alternator is to be connected to a bulk fuel tank of 1000 litres and is approximately 10 metres away. What is the smallest size fuel line you would recommend we use to draw fuel direct from this tank. Engine is set to run at 1500 RPM

All you need is 3/8 inch supply and 5/16 return line. The 10 meters is not a problem. as long as tank is on level with engine.
