Fuel Modules and Pumps

When it comes to building fuel modules, Delphi applies its OE expertise and technological leadership to deliver the highest level of performance and customer satisfaction. Delphi engineers each fuel module with the same stringent standards we apply to the parts we make for top vehicle manufacturers like Volkswagen and PSA.

Distinctly Delphi Fuel Pumps

  • Anodized aluminum can reduce flow loss by up to 100% in severe contamination
  • New carbon commutator extends fuel pump life by up to 300% over commonly used copper commutators by reducing oxidation and premature wear*
  • Over-molded armature protects pump windings in corrosive environments
  • Button style contacts feature additional wear material that can last for over 1 million cycles
  • High capacity synthetic mesh inlet filter is able to filter out all items larger than 30 microns
  • Distinctly Delphi with an electric blue fuel pump top, module top cover and strainer material

*In contaminated fuel or fuel with alcohol blends

Resource Highlights

In this article you will find some great tips about how to identify a flex fuel vehicle so you can select the right pump for your vehicle. 

Unique Parts

First, let’s talk about why flex fuel vehicles require parts designed just for them, and why you don’t want to use E85 in any vehicle that isn’t designed to run on alcohol-based fuels. E85 is eighty five percent ethyl alcohol, with fifteen percent gasoline added to it to make ethanol. So compared to gasoline, E85 has a higher oxygen content, more electrical conductivity, and it absorbs more moisture. That makes it highly corrosive. So if your vehicle isn’t designed to use E85, DON’T PUT IT IN THE TANK! E85 also yields less energy. So a flex fuel vehicle must have the right software in order to adjust its air – fuel ratio and generate the necessary power.

Determining if a vehicle is flex fue

One of the easiest ways to determine if a vehicle is flex fuel is to look at the gas cap. On a flex fuel vehicle, it’s yellow, and printed with the fuels that can be used.  A label on the inside of the fuel door will also indicate the fuel type. You can also check for Flex Fuel or E85 badging on the vehicle, or take a look at the eighth character of the VIN. Refer to service or application information that will tell you whether the vehicle is a flex fuel application.

Only use E85

It’s important to make sure you’re only using E85 in a flex fuel vehicle. In a conventional fuel system, it can cause a lot of problems.

  • High alcohol content causes steel lines to corrode. That’s why the fuel lines in flex fuel vehicles are usually lined with nylon.
  • Conventional rubber connecting hoses and O-ring seals tend to dry out when exposed to E85. That can lead to fuel leaks.
  • Metals in the fuel pump will corrode. That means poor pump performance. Conventional fuel pumps typically last for about nine thousand hours. But put one in a flex fuel vehicle, and it may only work for about five hundred hours
  • E85 will also deteriorate a conventional fuel level sensor and float, causing it to malfunction.

To make the right repair, you have to properly identify flex fuel vehicles and use the parts that are made for them. With these tips, you’ll be well on your way.
