Yeah, I would be curious to see what's so special about the Regina FPR. If it's
merely a different fitting or a different pressure, you would be able to use some
sort of generic FPR quite easily.

Supposedly the FPR can fail in a way that would either completely inhibit gas from
getting to the engine, or completely inhibit gas from returning to the fuel tank.
Neither result would yeild reasonable running.

Isn't the Regina system used on some Buicks? Perhaps it's like the blower
motor in the 700's that you could buy a generic one at any autoparts store.
