    Kajtek,

    You seem to know a bit about the mid to late nineties diesels.I currently own an '87' 300TD and am considering upgrading to a newer diesel.I'm primarily interested in higher MPG and a larger fuel tank to get me longer range.I considered going the TDI route but they seem too flimsy.
    I currently get about 30MPG doing 60-65 and have about an 18 gal. tank.I'd like to get 35+ MPG and although I like the power of the turbo, MPG is more important for me.I currently have an Elsbett kit on my car to run the car on clean veggie oil and would plan to do the same on my next car.I've heard about some of these mid-nineties cars having a 23+ gallon tank.
    Priorities:
    -Reliability
    -Build quality
    -High MPG
    -Large fuel tank

    Thank you,
    Robert

    Thanks again Kajlek1, the connector on top of the Duo valve was loose and had vibrated off so the coils were not being energised. All ok now and I have saved a lot of cash.
    Thats the power of the forum.
