Agree with this, from what I've read elsewhere it's a very good idea to make certain to prime the HPFP prior to starting the car - remember that our fuel is the lubricant for the pump. I've also read that the start button method hasn't worked, thus the suggestion for using the BT tool is dead on the mark.

Thank you for sharing this Quasimodem, great stuff!
