Mounting Fuel Pump

8:15 a.m.: The fuel pump should be mounted as close to the fuel tank as possible, and lower than the fuel outlet on the tank, if possible. Most inline fuel pumps push much better than they pull, so mounting it in this way will eliminate problems. The cushioned mounts reduce the sound somewhat, but you will definitely hear an external fuel pump when it’s running. You can also mount the Atomic fuel pump in the tank. The system includes a fuel filter to install after the fuel pump. You may also want to install a pre-filter between the pump and the tank to protect the pump. Something between 10 and 85 microns is fine to filter out debris but not be too hard for the pump to pull fuel through.
