...and tank strainer.

Listen to Lance. All the stuff mentioned is easy and part of a standard 30K maintenace regimen (certainly some items also at 15K). I want to place added emphasis on changing out the fuel tank screen, and, while the screen is removed, run a rag around in there, looking for bio-gunk.

Check out the attached poor pix of a fuel tank screen I just removed from Gray Ghost. It must have been OEM Sindelfingen (the MB factory) and 95% blocked. While I was having performance "problems" before and fiddled with the ALDA, to only a small improvement, with the new tank screen in, Gray Ghost is now an Interstate rocket, four passengers, AC on, nooooo problems!

Search the threads for how-to DIY the screen R&R. Ask any questions.

Good luck.
