I'm on my second Taurus... kept my first one for 10 years and I've had this one
for four. I've yet to burn out a fuel pump. The electric fuel pump on these
cars are intended to be immerged in gasoline for cooling purposes. I have
always made it a point to refuel as soon as the low fuel light comes on, even
though I know the tank still has 3 gallons or so left in it.
If I had to guess, you like to run it a lot closer to empty. If you do, stop.
The pump needs the cooling capacity of the gasoline washing over it.
Where are you located John? Do you use Shell gasoline - or
gasoline produced at a Shell refinery?
