If the fuse blows as soon as you replace it with the car off then its the wiring. If the fuse blows when you turn the key on then I would suspect the pump. Try and wiggle the wiring harness for the fuel pump and see if the fuse blows. If it does then the wiring harness is shorted some where. To further check that its the pump see if you can disconnect the harness to the pump at the tank and then turn the key on. If the fuse holds then plug the harness back in and see if the fuse blows. If it does then the pumps bad. Hope this helps. Backyard mechanic :)
