Re: 4.7 V8 (05 to 07) Fuel range after E

You're right. The "ding" does happen early. But when use nearly all of the 3 gallons left over after the "ding" then........

Re: 4.7 V8 (05 to 07) Fuel range after E

And it is a fact that the less fuel you have, the fuel pump will then operate at hotter temperatures.

Google it.

Re: 4.7 V8 (05 to 07) Fuel range after E

Anyway, as per above...

Been driving Jeeps for a very long time, the same way, same fueling cycles, full to the rim, empty to almost fumes and never had a problem with the fuel pumps in either WJ or WK.

Did replace a fuel filter inside tank ONCE in WJ after a 1200 mile, pure desert, sand trip years ago. Same fueling habits as always and never had an issue. The WK still going strong even with donuts on the beach, I relate to that one too.

If you take the tank out and check inside, you'd be surprised how clean the tank is, unless you do a trip like I mentioned and in extreme heat, it's like it causes a vacuum and sucks the sand particles into the tank somehow, regardless of how you refuel it.

Other guys that drive Nissans and Toyotas also suffer from these desert trips and never go out there without a spare fuel filter.

Re: 4.7 V8 (05 to 07) Fuel range after E

I can drive for 100+ kms after the ding. That's all there is too it.

That shit at the bottom of the tank is called gas, use it! haha

I don't need to google how a fuel pump works, It's pretty simple. And myself and clearly a lot of other people have been using the same method without killing the fuel pump.

If you are unsure of how long it take to run out, then fill up. There's nothing wrong with that either. But to say that it's "wrong" or "abusive" to drive passed the ding is crazy talk! lol

Fuel pump running hotter is still fact.

Re: 4.7 V8 (05 to 07) Fuel range after E

And like I said before, I've burnt up a fuel pump long ago driving long miles to school. It's hot in the south.

Edit: And not saying it was due to keeping it in low fuel but I was told that it was burnt up when it was replaced. This was back in 2006 around when I first bought the WK for college.

True dat. I've had the tanks out in my TJ and my XJ...very surprised how clean they were inside.
