    Diesel Promaster Discussion
    2014 159" Diesel 52,000 miles. Wondering if anyone has ever had this happen: The DEF Low Refill Soon message appeared, but the tank is full. My mechanic (not a dealer shop) is able to imitate the sensor with the scan tool so we are pretty sure it not an electrical issue. Could the tank level...

  6. Auxiliary Diesel Tank Filling

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    Hi All, I've got a gasoline 3500 PM and am installing a diesel fuel tank under the vehicle to use for the Espar heater I plan to install. I'm trying to maximize stealth with this build, and would therefore really like to be able to avoid cutting an additional hole in the side of the van for an...
