has the fuel pump ever been replaced?

Expert:  tim's auto repair replied 4 months ago.

sorry,,i see it has..

Expert:  tim's auto repair replied 4 months ago.

there is no way for water to get into the fuel unless the seal on the fuel pump is bad or a hose is disconnected from the tank

the only other way is for it to be pumped in at the service station
