BBK Fuel Regulators
Why Fuel Pumps are Important
First off, start by shopping around online. If you stick with your dealership or local mechanic, you inevitably get stuck paying an exorbitant markup designed to put his kids through college. Also, by shopping around you’ll see that there is a whole host of fuel pumps and fuel regulators out there designed for different purposes. From towing to racing to commuting, the different fuel pumps are an important consideration. Next, consider the aftermarket brands. BBK fuel pump kits, Venom fuel pumps and brands like Bosch and Carter make factory-grade or better pumps at prices much less than the OEM parts.
When changing out a fuel pump, it’s a good idea to consider revamping your entire fuel system. For instance, if you tow a heavy trailer with your F150, a set of performance F150 fuel injectors should be considered along with your pump purchase. Or, if you run a diesel power plant, one of the many methanol injectors out there will deliver massive performance and better mileage. There are also a host of add-ons like fuel catalysts, magnets and vortex drivers that can help save fuel. In fact, one Fitch fuel catalyst review said his truck gained over 2 MPG right out of the box.
