People have been running E85 for a LOOOONG time... I'm sure this would have turned up sooner than now if it was an actual reason for concern.

He stated they were both used pumps before being put into E85. Bet they came out and sat dry for a long time or something stupid.

We had a customer that went through 2 OEM delphi replacements before we installed a 3rd. He ran 93 octane and the car was near stock. Therefor we can conclude that premium gas kills fuel pumps.:io:

Exactly. His dumbass made an "end all be all" rocker thread and was thrown actual facts that started him to doubt himself. :rofl: Apparently 1.9 modded rockers suck balls.

Agreed with DD, didn't even read the response and had the same response myself. The guy is a dumb shit, had he posted this on CGP, all hell would break loose.

If it is ethanol killing pumps, standard E10 would do some damage... most 90's and up fuel systems are alcohol safe due to the switch over to E10 :dunno:

I am glad that DH shares his wreath of knowledge over here as he does on the Fiero Forum. If you guys want you can keep him over here full time so he can spread his knowledge of all.
Best line so far
