Inside your gas tank is an important piece of equipment known as the Land Rover fuel pump. Your Land Rover fuel pump is responsible for moving the fuel from where it sits in your fuel reservoir up through your fuel injection system and into your engine. Your Land Rover fuel pump is an electric motor, and it is constantly running as long as your engine is running. Since operating electric motors generate heat, there has to be something to cool your Land Rover fuel pump and prevent damage from overheating. You may be surprised to learn that the fuel itself acts as a coolant for your Land Rover fuel pump. With this in mind, it is easy to understand why it's often recommended that you don't allow your gas tank to run completely empty, especially if your vehicle is fuel-injected. If there is no fuel in your gas tank, there is nothing to cool your Land Rover fuel pump. Another reason to make sure your gas tank doesn't run dry is the sediment that builds up inside your reservoir over time. When your Land Rover fuel pump runs out of fuel, it will suck up this sediment and attempt to push it through the fuel injection system. This can clog your Land Rover fuel pump and cause permanent damage. The best thing you can do for your Land Rover fuel pump is to make sure your tank is at least one-quarter full at all times. If your Land Rover fuel pump fails, however, there is nothing to do except install a replacement. You will find a great selection of Land Rover fuel pumps in our vast online catalogue, searchable by your vehicle's make and model.
