    When one of the hoses in my tank ruptured, I tried that and got a good stream of fuel out of the injector head because with the injector off there isn't any pressure in the line. That's why I now think that starting with the return line is best. If you get a couple liters of fuel in 60 seconds then the pump, filter and internal hoses are all good to go. If you don't get food return flow the failure is most likely inside the tank.

    Had a similar issue after my 1100 sat for over a year. Empty tank, added a gallon or so - nothing. Added another 2 gallons or so for a total of around 3 gallons, fired right up. :clap
