Guy here at work says that Chrysler is notorious for putting the fuel pump inside the gas tank, and for counting on the gasoline itselt to keep the pump cool, and that, therefore, one should always keep at least a quarter of a tank of gas in order to prevent the pump from overheating.

I realize that we're made my Mitsubishi in Japan, but one never knows. Anybody know if this applies to us as well?

Hate to keep responding but I would imagine the guys are correct because not only would you want to keep the pump cool, but you would also want the fuel to keep things lubricated to prevent overheating and making the electric motor work too hard thereby shortning its life.

Our pump isn't working overtime compared to other cars like the Camaro, whos pump mostly dies if you once run out of gas (know problem). Our's is running on low speed in normal mode and therefore absolutely no problem. Even at very high 14V speeds the thing isn't a problem. In this case, Denso did a good job
