The fuel pump plays a crucial role in the operation of a car’s engine, supplying the necessary fuel for combustion. Located inside the fuel tank, the fuel pump draws fuel and delivers it to the engine at the required pressure and flow rate. It ensures that the engine receives a consistent supply of fuel for optimal performance and efficiency.
The fuel pump is typically powered by electricity, either through a mechanical connection to the engine or directly by an electric motor. Modern vehicles commonly use electric fuel pumps due to their reliability and ability to maintain consistent pressure throughout various driving conditions.
