7 Replies and 12257 Views Life expectancy of pump  12257  7 Started by  suzukini I have a claim in which I am trying to determine the life expectancy of a diesel fuel pump (the kind that distributes fuel to a vehicle, not the part on a vehicle).  Does anyone have any idea how to determine this information  The gas pump representative states they usually last between 12-15yrs, but my supervisor wants clarification.  I have performed exhaustive web searches for this info and cannot find anything.  Thanks for any info you can share.
