Electric Fuel Pumps Information

(Code: FPA)
For carburettor cars the standard fuel pump may not be able to maintain adequate fuel pressure at higher engine speeds, particularly with a tuned car.

Electric pumps can be fitted to the front or rear of the car, but ideally not higher than 70cm from the fuel tank bottom feed. Electric fuel pumps provide further benefits in alleviating problems associated with vapour lock and give constant fuel pressure even at high temperatures.

Where the original mechanical or electric fuel pump is not readily available these pumps are a cost-effective solution.

If converting from a manual pump be sure to fit a fuel prefilter before the pump - any dirt or grit larger than a grain of sand will instantly wreck an electric pump.
