Pump Up The Volume
For years, racing fuel pumps have had reliability issues stemming from long periods of inactivity and the destructive nature of corrosive fuels and condensation. A secondary issue was the premature wear caused by heavy loading required to move 350-450 gallons per hour of fuel. Quick Fuel Technology has addressed both problem areas with its 427-gph fuel pump (PN 30-427) that is capable of supplying enough fuel to support 800-2,500 horsepower, and is compatible with gas, alcohol, and E85. The wear issue was improved by making several changes, including a new six-vane rotor made out of a sintered bronze and graphite compound that improves wear, lubricity, and corrosion resistance. The lower pump body has a black-anodized coating. Find out more at quickfueltechnology.com or by calling 270.793.0900.
