The easiest is to use an inline pump right at the fuel cell.

Dedguy,

I have an 1985 S-10 that I put a fuel cell in and I put an external Holley electric fuel pump just outside and below the cell on the frame. I used the existing fuel lines from the pump to the engine. I also hard wired it through a toggle switch that has a built in light so I could tell if there was power going to the pump. It works really well for me.

You need to find a high pressure pump for fuel injection. I've never seen an after market that is not submerged in the fuel tank. Try and use the original and hang it in the cell.

just go to your local parts store and tell them you need a inline pump for the car you are running they have a book that tells what pressure it needs to be. Bobby

Ive got a fuel question. Im assuming since your running fuel injection you are using a fuel return to the tank right? How bout on carb motors, due you run a return line or block it off at the carb?

I have a Holley electric pump with regulator if you're interested.

Most tanks have a return line built into it. But if it doesnt. You can drill the right size whol and get one of the metal valve stems that have rubber on each side remove the stem and put it in make sure it is close to the cap so you can get your hand in there to put on the back side nut.
