Default Engine pump is suspect

Yes, as Scott says--- the engine driven fuel pump is certainly suspect. Check the overflow drain on it for fuel stains.

Is this a good idea? Plug the end of the fuel pump drain with Styrofoam. If the Styrofoam melts, that means that gasoline is leaking from the pump.
