Converting a VW Rabbit

I just bought an '82 VW Rabbit diesel, 1.6l engine. Runs great and in really great condition. I am concerned about running B-100. I understand the IP has a rubber o-ring/seal that could fail. So, I'm going to go two-tank like I've done with my F-250 for almost 250,000 miles.

The VW does not have a lift pump. Rather, the injection pump has a rotary vane pump in it that pulls the fuel from the tank and through the fuel filter. What about adding a low pressure pump to get it through the filter and to the engine, no more than 4psi. Seems this would be good for running heated WVO or a blend.

Tips? Suggestions?
