Is Your Fuel Economy Suffering Because of a Failing Fuel Pump?

Fuel pump problems can be difficult to diagnose because they can mimic problems with other parts of an engine. One tell-tale sign of a failing fuel pump is a loss of fuel economy that becomes noticeable at the gas pump.

A fuel pump can malfunction in a couple ways. Typically, it will lose the power needed to pump enough fuel to the engine, which causes the engine to sputter and misfire when revved or driven at freeway speeds. It can also deliver too much fuel to the engine, which causes inefficient fuel-to-air ratios. In both cases, you'll notice your fuel economy decrease.
