why don't you just take of the dam thing and go only with a plain return to tank ?

You need some heat in the tank around the pickup to liquefy a small amount so it can be sucked up the pickup tube. VO will be gelled at 0F.

Well, since you mentioned that before I saw no need to repeat it again.
Please keep in mind that he reports a warm tank even till next morning on super cold nights.

I checked my fittings and the stock stainless lines today. Seems the buildup has been reduced. Its just a fine coating now. I guess the B100 did have some effect.

Now its time to get serious about modifying/upgrading my system. GC has served me well for this long, but I just assume go another 3 years/100K miles.
2005 Golf GLS PD-TDI, 5-speed. Grease Car kit installed right off the lot when brand new. Running on WVO about 85% of the time.
