The injectors are closed when the engine is off and fuel cannot flow to them through the fuel head because you have no system pressure when the residual pressure (23psi after 10 min) is too low. The accumulator is the only place it can go. If your accumulator is original, it is either stuck or leaking or both. Invest in a new one and you will have eliminated most of your possible problems. Also, I would drain and refill the tank and replace the fuel filter. Good gas does not make bad gas good. You have moisture, alcohol by-products, settled dirt, and other bad things in the tank. The recirculating system we have will guarantee all of that gunk ends up in places you don't want it. Also dump some Sea Foam, BG44, Techron, or whatever you fancy in with the first tank, it will dissolve and flush out the nasties. It's less expensive than a rebuilt fuel head and almost as good.
