Preserving the Life of Your Fuel Pump

Two Tips for Helping Your Fuel Pump Last Longer

Fuel pumps can be an expensive and unwanted hassle to replace. You can improve fuel pump longevity in your vehicle by using these simple tips. Save yourself time, money and stress by incorporating the following into your car-care regimen.

1. Avoid Contamination

Fuel tank contamination can destroy your fuel pump. Contamination can occur from the fuel itself or simply from an older fuel tank. Buying your fuel from a reputable pumping station can reduce the risk of poor-quality fuels contaminating your fuel pump. When the fuel is clean, the risk is considerably less. If you are dealing with an older vehicle and therefore an older fuel tank, the build-up of rust from corrosion that can occur over many years may be contaminating your fuel from inside your vehicle. The solution here is to have your tank cleaned thoroughly. In some cases, depending on the level of corrosion, it may even need to be replaced.

2. Don’t Go Below a Quarter Tank

You’re not alone if you tend to push it when it comes to refilling your gas tank, letting the gas light coming on be your indicator that the time has come! That said, this is a habit that puts unnecessary pressure on your fuel pump. The pump is normally submerged in fuel. This cools and lubricates the fuel pump. However, when the fuel starts running low, the fuel pump has to work harder to extract the fuel from the bottom of the tank and there isn’t fuel around submerging it to cool the mechanism. When this occurs week after week, it can quickly lead to premature wear and tear on your fuel pump.

Fuel Pump Replacement in Northeast Ohio

Alas, even in the best of circumstances, fuel pumps don’t last forever. Whenever it does come time to replace your fuel pump, Weber Automotive offers fuel pump replacement in North Olmsted. We are easily accessible from most anywhere in the greater Cleveland area. We use only the highest quality replacement pumps and we know our workmanship and products will meet or exceed your needs and specifications.

One of our service advisers will work with you to ensure that your replacement fuel pump is compatible with the type of fuel used in your vehicle. For example, FlexFuel vehicles can operate using gas with up to 85% ethanol, so your fuel pump and other fuel system components need to be able to withstand the corrosive effects of fuel with a high alcohol content.
