'mystery fuel' damage fuel pump??
OK, I've seen the "mystery fuel" we buy at the pumps blamed for a lot of sins here and in other forums. Did some blaming myself as a matter of fact.
Just replaced the fuel pump in my '97 F-150, 4.2L, the interesting thing is that I replaced it in 2007 also. Chatting with some mechanic friends, they all are of the opinion that after market fuel pumps don't last as long, but 4 years seems a little short. They don't know my luck..
Wondering if an additive would have helped prolong life, or if the trucks's low mileage (5,000 a year) is a factor.
I replace the fuel filter every other year given the low mileage.
I realize it's my fault, I'm supposed to replace the truck every five years. :-)
