A fuel pump is used to supply fuel to the fuel injection system or carburetor, depending on the year of the vehicle. Older vehicles use a mechanical pump to deliver low pressure fuel to the carburetor, while fuel injected vehicles require an electric pump capable of the high pressures required to make the system work efficiently. A fuel injection system is more efficient than its predecessor the carburetor and can better operate in extreme conditions, while becoming more dependable at start up.
Simply put, the purpose of a fuel pump is to draw fuel from the fuel tank then to deliver it to a fuel injector or carburetor. All vehicle engines operate by way of a mechanical pump or via a fuel injected pump. Chances are if your engine requires a mechanical pump it is quite old and has fuel pumping at a low pressure from a fuel tank to the carburetor. Most likely your engine uses a fuel injected pump as do most modern engines and transfers fuel at high pressure into the fuel injection system from an electrical pump mounted either inside or outside the fuel tank, and a broken fuel pump is as useful as an empty fuel tank!
