My question is : By keeping these cars and trucks at such a low feul level does it pose a threat to the fuel pumps of over heating and going out due to not being submerged?
And, When the new program was instated we had to idle the
vehicles that were over 1/4 of a tank down to 1/8 of a tank and then add enough gas to get them back up to 1/4 of a tank. Some of the vehicles had to be idled for 3 to 5 days from the time we opened to the time we closed depending on the type of vehicle. Due to this massive Idel Defuel, in the following month we had about 10 to 12 fuel pumps go out. We feel that the problem was lettting them idel for that long period of time instead of having the fuel mechanically removed.
Could the 10 to 12 fuel pumps that went out following the massive defeul been a result of overheating of the fuel pump due to excessive ideling? And what reasons could that have happended so we can show our General Manager that this new Program is going to hurt or help?
have the same problem?
