    Thanks ! I contacted a Dealership and the responce was either the pump works or it does not , are you under the assumption from your own work experience ,is that the thing is compromized from ethanol or other things to make it do what it is doing ? I bought this new and no one drives it but me and I always youse Sunoco gas and have a lock cap on the filler tube . Hope to here from you .
