Things to Consider while Choosing an Electric Fuel Pump

Category: Others/ Misc

Presentation Description

The new cars mostly come equipped with an electric fuel pump, which provides efficient transfer of fuel from the tank to the engine. So, when it fails, you have to think about different aspects like compatibility with the engine and the voltage of the pump, before buying a new one. In order to view the things to consider while choosing an electric fuel pump, see the below slides.

Things to Consider while Choosing an Electric Fuel Pump


An electric fuel pump is very efficient and is usually located near or inside the fuel tank.


Mainly, there are two types of electric pumps- an inline fuel pump, which connects to the fuel line and its wires connected to the battery while an in-tank pump is located inside the fuel tank.


The pump creates pressure that pushes gas into the engine to fire up the vehicle.


Choosing the right pump for your vehicle will ensure that it maintains an efficient supply of fuel to the engine for the ultimate performance of the vehicle.


These are simple things to consider that will help you choose the correct electric fuel pump for your car.


Determine Engine Power


The full power of the engine of your vehicle and how much fuel it requires to achieve this is the first determinant of the kind of fuel pump to choose.


Get the fuel pump that matches the power of your engine as replacing a small pump will blow up the motor of your vehicle and cause it to perform poorly.


And if you get a bigger pump for a less powerful engine will draw in more fuel than the engine can consume not only costing you the fuel but also create problems such as engine surging.


Establish the Engine’s Fuel Efficiency


As the pressure of the fuel system rises, the volume of the pump decreases.


Knowing the maximum pressure of your vehicle’s fuel system will guide you in choosing an electric pump whose flow volume matches the pressure.


Find out the Voltage of the Pump


Establish the voltage of the pump required for the total engine load of your vehicle and the pump’s flow volume at that voltage.


Ensure that the voltage of your electric fuel pump is the correct one to pump sufficient fuel to the engine as the voltage of the electric pump creates pressure on the fuel and moves it into the fuel system.


It is important to ensure that your electric fuel pump’s voltage matches the pressure of the fuel system as the higher the voltage the greater the volume of fuel pushed into the fuel system.


Identify Car and Engine Details


Collect other engine details that will aid you in choosing an electric fuel pump are the size of the engine, the year of manufacture as well as the make and model of your vehicle.


This will guide you in getting the fuel pump that is best suited to fuel the exact provisions of the engine.


Final words


After you have matched all the electric pump qualities to the needs of your car, choose a pump from a trusted brand.


Because a strong brand will guarantee quality and the pump will perform as per the requirement of the car.
