Is there a pump or filter in the stock Diesel fuel tank? I wanted to keep it as simple as possible, so I am looking for really clean oil to filter well and then just put in the stock tank if it would work. Maybe I'd add an electric block heater to the tank and heat the oil up with house power before driving.

It seems with all the extra under hood area behind the headlights, you could put in a 3-5gal tank under hood and it'd be really easy to heat with coolant.

Would it make any sense to heat the oil with on board electricity and turn off the heater after the oil was warm? I wonder if there are any good 12v heaters that would get oil to 170 degrees.

Thank You,
