    Yeah, I've read that running the tank very low often is hard on the pump (supposedly gets hot when not submerged).

    What is your driving habits? Do you run the car empty? Most of the time, some of the times? Type of gas?87 or 91
    Good question, running very low on gas can over heat the pump as there is little to help keep it cool.

    I never let it go below half a tank, this allows for the pump to always be sitting in a bath a of fuel. I feel like i proved it with a civic (1997) i have owned for 22 years and still on the original fuel pump.
