Bomba de combustible

Mechanical gasoline fuel pumps were replaced with electric gasoline fuel pumps aEl motor pasa del carburador a la inyección de combustible., simply because fuel injection systems operate much more efficiently at larger fuel pressures (40-60 psi) than mechanical diaphragm pumps can generate. Even though electrical components (such as a gasoline fuel pump) can spark and ignite fuel vapors, liquid fuel will not explode (see flammability limit ) and consequently submerging the pump in the tank is one particular of the safest locations to put it. In most cars, the gasoline fuel pump delivers a continuous flow of gasoline to the engine fuel not employed is returned to the tank.
