Hi, I purchased a GM 2500HD 6.0 gas engine four door truck last year.
It ran great for about a year, has 66k miles on it now and this June it
started throwing injectors. They were clogged with what looked like
rust. I suspected bad gasoline, since my fuel tank is plastic. The
fuel filter was emptied when I had it serviced and I watched the guy

did NOT recommend a new fuel pump, however, and listed on the receipt
that they cleaned the rust off of the fuel pump housing.
Any hints? Anyone else have this problem?
