Less costly too.The fuel is what cools the fuel pump in fuel injected vehicles (including the RE).If the tank runs dry the pump can overheat and fail.
The main reason why electric fuel pumps fail is because the vehicle has been run out of fuel. Most people don't realize or take into consideration that fuel pumps are a wet pump, they are designed to be continuously submerged in fuel. The petroleum in the fuel lubricates the pump as it is running, when you run the tank out of fuel, there is no load on the pump, so it spins more freely, but there is no more fuel to lubricate the pump and the pump seizes. Same concept if you run your engine out of oil but keep running the engine. It might run for a few minutes, but sooner than later it will seize up.NEVER RUN AN ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP EMPTY!!!Scottie
