I was reading about fuel pumps, which are electric powered. I was trying to understand why they wouldn't be part of the drivebelt assembly and my guess was that they need steady pumping rather than variable-speed, which is OK for every other pump on the drivebelt system. Can anybody expand on this?
I was also trying to understand why they are always situated inside the fuel tank and not outside somewhere. Because it shouldn't matter where the pumping occurs as long as there is an intake hose/line that dips into the bottom of the tank.
