roundabout. as i reached the roundabout, the car dies. Managed to slowly

no one exactly know the life time of the fuel pump. As my concern, to

The logical is that when your tank nearly empty, the fuel pump will push
to the limit to pump in petrol to engine. In long term it will definitely
cause affect to the fuel pump.
