Preventing Premature Fuel Pump Failure

Fill your tank frequently

 

Filling your tank frequently and keeping it above a quarter full can help to protect your fuel pump. The fuel pump should last about 100,000 miles and maintaining a higher level of fuel in the tank helps to prevent premature failure. You can keep your fuel pump in better condition by keeping your fuel levels above a quarter of a tank.

There are multiple fuel pump benefits.

 

  • Keeps operating temperature safe
  • Increases fuel pump efficiency
  • Regulates fuel pump wear
