Has the fuel filter ever been changed? I would suspect not and the
extra effort needed to push gas through a clogged filter is causing
the early demise of the pumps. Could also be a plugged filter sock
inside the tank, but any mechanic worth going to would replace that
whenever the pump unit is pulled.

You need to have the electical connections at the fuel
pump module checked closely where the wiring harness
is plugged into the module (note: this is not an "electrical"
module, I'm talking about the white plastic module that
the fuel pump sits in that is inserted into the fuel tank).
I've seen a number of these where the metri-pak connectors
lose their grip and the connection begins to arc. Eventually
the connection is lost, and sometimes it can melt the plastic
inside the wiring harness connector. Often..you can replace
the fuel pump module and it works...for a while...then
the connection goes south from the continued arcing. You
have to replace the wiringharness when you replace the
fuel pump module.
Yep, I have heard that too, gm recommends you replace the wireingharness
when you replace the pump, I just replaced the entire sending unit when the
pump on my S-10 went bad, I didnt feel like fiddleing with the stupid thign.
