In Tank Lift Pump: Fleece Performance Enters Lift Pump Game

While at the 2018 edition of the Diesel Thunder Spring Break event in Holt, Florida, we swung into the Fleece Performance Engineering booth to see some of their new products on display. Among other great new products, one stood out from the others. The all-new FPE PowerFlo in-tank lift pump. It was rumored that these were released previously at the PRI Tradeshow in Indianapolis, but we had to see it for ourselves.

Fleece had plenty of great products on display including their fuel distribution blocks, dual CP3 pumps, and coolant bypass kits.

One of the first things that we do to our trucks once acquiring them is a lift pump. On our diesel trucks, the lift pump helps feed fuel up to the CP3 pump(s). If you’re starving the CP3 pumps of fuel, you’re starving your fuel injectors, which are inevitably going to abduct your much-wanted horsepower and torque output.

With most lift pumps, you’re required to mount the pump and filters on the frame rails or somewhere on the truck and plumb fuel lines up to the CP3 injection pumps. While that’s the most common option when entering the aftermarket helper pump market, this kit will allow you to avoid doing that completely. Your only requirement is to drop your fuel tank and use this drop in sending unit.

Like the factory sending unit, this pump is a drop as if you were replacing the factory one. If you’ve replaced one of these before, you know that is is going to be convenient as you can knock out two birds with one stone. New sending unit and a lift pump in one.

This silent operation utilizes the factory connections for an easy installation and it’s active fill bucket technology. This eliminates the need for a draw straw or a sump. The PowerFlo Lift Pump uses two OEM quality gerotor pumps that have been durability tested for more than 12,000-hours of 170-GPH at 15-psi flow, which means this simple in-tank pump is capable of 800+ horsepower.

At this time, the Fleece PowerFlo unit is available for the 2005-2018 Dodge Ram trucks. According to our sources, the Duramax-Powered trucks are soon to follow.

This unit utilizes regulated return flow, which eliminates overpressure situations as well as a properly scaled float and level sending unit for accurate fuel level readings. Unlike other options, you’re forced to use new connections, but with the PowerFlo it uses the existing factory quick disconnects for quick and reliable installation.

Not only is this pump easy to install, but it also operates silently inside the tank, unlike others which also require you to use chassis mounting hardware.

The convenience of this pump could change things forever for the trucks that aren’t all out builds but still need the reliability and assurance of a lift pump. For more information on the Fleece PowerFlo lift pumps, check out their website.
