An electric fuel pump is an important part of any vehicle that uses gasoline or diesel fuel. It helps move the fuel through the engine and into the carburetor. Learn how these pumps work and why they’re so important.

And Why You Need One!

Electric Fuel PumpThe electric fuel pump utilizes direct current (DC). DC pumps use current from the battery to push the fuel from the gas/diesel tank through the system and into the carburetor or injectors.

Different applications, from small engines to large diesel generators, use electric fuel pumps.

These types of pumps is are an essential part of any engine or generator system.
In addition to being used in vehicles, these pumps are also used in equipment such as forklifts, lawn mowers, snow blowers, and other heavy machinery. These pumps are often found in industrial settings where there is a need to move small or large amounts of fuel at high pressure.

The electric fuel pump works by drawing fuel through it, which causes the fuel to move through the pump and into the carburetor. This process allows the fuel to mix with air and create combustion.

The electric fuel pump utilizes direct current (DC). DC pumps use current from the battery to push the fuel from the gas/diesel tank through the system and into the carburetor or injectors.  There are a number of manufacturers that build these types of pumps.  They are Magnafuel, Holley, Quick Fuel Technology, Edelbrock, BD Diesel, FiTech Fuel Injection.
