When I get a chance I'm going to swap fuel pumps with another 900T in the yard and see if that dows anything. Those fuel pumps are expensive and I don't want to throw the money at it if that isn't the problem. The other 900T runs fine so if I swap pumps that will tell me for sure. I suspect it is the pump, just puzzeled about the magic of the 1/4 tank thing. I'll post back here if the pump swap resolves the issue, especially if it moves the problem to the other vehicle....
