Recently launched as part of the Clean the Tank program, Delphi now offers a new fuel tank cleaning kit designed to make the job of replacing the fuel pump easier for technicians and enable them to clean the tank more safely and effectively. The kit, which includes cleaning solution, gloves and a lint-free cloth, provides a low-suds cleaning solution specifically designed to allow easy treatment and rinsing of fuel tanks up to 40 gallons in size.

Most fuel pump and module warranty issues are linked to debris or contamination in the fuel tank that may have accumulated over vehicle use, or during the removal and replacement procedure. Fine particulate contamination can clog the strainer causing high electrical demand on the fuel pump, and if ingested, can result in premature wear within the pumping section.
