    Hi wanting to put e85 lift pump into my vt series 1 mra fuel assembly. The Pierburg 200 ltr looks good as it as a fairly low flow rate to keep my 2ltr surge tank full returning back to main tank. Have been using OEM pump but it has finally  given into the e85. I’ have a Bosch o44 feeding of the surge which Also returns from rails

    After feed back of what e85 lift pump would fit best in the OEM vt pump assembly and if anyone has been down this path?

    Thanx in advance

    I have a pair of Pierburgs as my lift pumps, as one didn’t have enough flow.  No issues at all.  They are E85 compatible although I have since only run 98.

    Havent done it yet in the new setup which will run e85.

    The 460 walbro is e85 approved but it’s a big lift pump, it will outflow ur 044.

    I know people using the 342 with e85. No issue.

    Just make sure you don’t have issues with the fuel gauge withthe drop in gear. I had issues in my ute.

    How you mean, be careful not to knock the float while installing?

    My fuel gauge stopped working 12 months ago so I’ve been topping up e85 every 300 klms ha ha been getting 300klm on 40 ltrs.

    Will be nice to have a gauge that works again once I do the install mate

    I recently installed the low pressure, high flow Pierburg E85 in tank pump. Wasn’t too hard to install, though this was in a VN-VS style setup.
