ive owned my EF Fairmont aabout 4 years.. and im on the verge of having installed its 4th fuel pump.. -All times done at either the Ford dealer or the local Caltex.. Ive toataled 140,000km in four years.. is three fuel pump failures too much? -nearly to be soon be running its fourth "New fuel pump".. i get the tank cleaned out every time and a new pump installed but its allways the same crap.. -"dirty fuel blocking/clogging the pump".. I only fuel up at "Woolworths and coles fuel stations using "Premium 98 octane fuel".. is there anything apart from the stock pump i can install thet slots into the origanal position of the stock pump? -say a heavier duty one? are EL and AU fuel pumps the same? Can they be retro fitted? PS- i never fuel up when a tanker is off loading fuel to by the way.. :wink: any ideas would be helpful as im at "My wits end" of my cars unnateral appetite for fuel pumps.. cheers..

Get a Walbro 255gph pump. I have mine in the 5.0 for over 100000k and no problems at all. And why pay someone to fit it, do it yourself, its a pieice of piss

Hmm good s**t, im in the hunt for a new fuel pump as we speak...

Are the Walbro 255gph pumps much better than the stock ones? And what sort of advantages you get? Just more reliable?
