GMC Safari Problem

I don't have this problem because I prevented and I change the fuel filter once a year every 6,000 to 7,000 miles... since gasoline is always contaminated and clog the filter soon, and with a clog filter the fuel pump is working forced until is broken.
If you change the filter every years with a normal average miles used... you will have a healthty fuel pump for long time. My fuel pump still working fine since I have my Safari almost 10 years.
