Hey guys my hino 268 right side passenger tank started running empty way faster than normal , I looked in drivers side tank it’s full, it’s pulling from one returning to other leaving me out of fuel. Just put on a new fuel pump house an filter an suggestions?

It sounds like maybe there's something clogging the left tank if it's not pulling fuel from it. Does your 2006 still have its original steel tanks? Those like to rust inside and rusty chunks get caught up in the elbows on the tops of the tank and sometimes the tank pickup tubes. I'd have a good look at all the fuel lines to make sure none got pinched or crushed.
