Fuel Pump Question
« on: April 17, 2019, 09:04:31 PM »
I am looking at ditching my saddle tanks for a rear mount. The blazer tank seems to be the most economical "stock" way to do it, but my question is can I use an external electric fuel pump with the stock sending unit/fuel pickup? I will be converting to EFI down the road but I don't want to run an internal pump.

Internal pump is the way to go. Why wouldn't you want to go this route?

Certainly not with my worn out 305, but when something else takes it's place it might...

Anyways, I asked because I am in between getting a blazer tank and using that, or getting the 20gal fuel cell from summit which has a sump so I would't need to use the stock sending unit anyways
