I have a fuel pressure regulator on my 83 CJ7 with a 258. When I first start my jeep, the pressure shows correctly at about 3.5 to 4 psi, but after running it for a while, like after it warms up, when I check the gauge, it will show almost nothing, maybe just a tad above 0 psi. My jeep still seems to run fine and I don't notice any change in the way it runs. Could I be actually losing pressure as it warms up, or is my FPR gauge not working correctly? Any ideas or other things I can try to see what's really happening?
Not sure what you have for a setup, but IMO, I would say the guage is faulty by what you are saying. Only way to truely test it, is to pull it off and have it done at your local parts store. It sounds like my oil gauge, works great at start up at 55 and then drops to 20 or 0 depending on how much rpm's it is at.

Ok I will try that today. Just for reference though, I have the return connected to the offset of the fuel filter. The main fuel line is connected to the center. Is that backwards? And how would I have known that? I'm sure thats a noob question, but you gotta learn somehow right?
