Collection: Fuel Pump Buying Guide

Best driving comfort and higher power are among the benefits of having a Hyundai Genesis Coupe. You will still enjoy an excellent driving experience with your car, even as it ages. A 3.8-liter V6 engine 2016 Genesis Coupe with a 348-horsepower can still compete with newer sports cars. It can rev up to maximum speed in 60 seconds, giving you a quick head start over other vehicles in its class. 

However, some owners of older models have had their embarrassing moments. A sudden loss of power in the middle of the highway race with other sports cars was a humiliation they won’t forget. The culprit is a failing pump. So, don’t get caught in such upsetting situations by upgrading your fuel pump to aftermarket parts.

 

 

Signs of Fuel Pump Issues

A failing fuel pump can lead to many issues. But you can avoid these problems by knowing the best time for a Hyundai Genesis fuel pump replacement. There are signs you need to observe, and they are as follows:

  • Higher gas mileage.
  • Power loss at high speed.
  • Lack of power during acceleration.
  • Episodes of power surges.
  • Fluctuating Temperature.
  • Sputtering engine sound.
  • Hard start.

Wear and tear are the main reason for a failing pump. However, there are other factors, as well. One of them is a rusted-out fuel tank, which is a significant factor in the pump’s ultimate fail. The tank will rust as a result of bad driving conditions like rain, sleet, and snow. Likewise, a constant low fuel level in the tank can lead to excess moisture build-up and eventually rusting the tank that comprises its structural integrity. 

Aside from a rusted-out tank, fuel quality is another contributing factor. Dirty fuel can cause the pump to fail eventually. Thus, choose your fuel wisely. Go for trusted fuel brands known for their high standards of quality.

Three Important Buying Considerations

Voltage

Fuel pumps of different brands and models have varying flow rates. The flow rate differs at a certain voltage level. As the voltage increases, the fuel pump speed also increases along with the pump flow. Most cars have a pump flow rating of 12 volts.

Fuel Pressure

Fuel pressure is inversely related to the fuel flow. The higher the pressure, the flow of fuel also decreases. An electric fuel injection engine has a normal pressure of 9 to 18 psi. But a carburetor has lower normal pressure of 4 to 7 psi. 

Horsepower

Your car’s horsepower determines the amount of fuel needed by the engine. Apparently, higher horsepower will require a higher volume of fuel. As a rule of thumb, a gallon of fuel can support ten horsepower. Thus, a Genesis Coupe with 348HP would require a pumping flow of at least 34.8gph.

Two Main Types of Fuel Pump

There are two main types of fuel pumps designed by manufacturers to work for specific types of engines.

Mechanical Fuel Pump

There are still come cars today with carburetor type of engine. A good example is the 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe. Carburetor engines are also using mechanical fuel pumps. Therefore, check your car model to determine your needs for a mechanical fuel pump.

Electric Fuel Pump

Newer models are now using an electric fuel injection engine, replacing the carburetor. Thus, they need an electric pump, which works directly with the fuel injectors. Electric fuel pumps are more efficient working at high pressure better than the mechanical types.

 

A Hyundai Genesis fuel pump upgrade to aftermarket market parts can help avoid humiliating racing moments due to a failed pump.
