Fuel System Efficiency & Economy

With the ever-increasing demands on fuel efficiency and fuel economy,

 

the fuel system has seen dramatic changes over the last 30 years. Modern engines have turned away from mechanical pumps in favour of electrical in order to increase power and to meet the stringent regulations on emissions.

Cambiare’s fuel line products launched in 2013 with a range of 193 part numbers covering over 2,500 applications more focussed towards mid-to-older aged vehicles. With the new range extension of 60 part numbers, Cambiare’s fuel pump programme has increased by 33% to cover an additional 1.6 million vehicles, which are mostly modern in design – for those recently entered or are soon approaching service life.

As a mid-tier brand, Cambiare offers high-quality fuel pumps and sender units at lower prices. This strategic shift towards more modern applications to reflect market demand, will help Cambiare further strengthen its position in an evolving market place.

 

Market Opportunity

Cambiare stocks a vast range of fuel pumps, with the new-to-range parts injection covering approximately 1,642,600 applications.

Top applications include (images):

Vauxhall Insignia 2.0 07/08>

BMW 520d 2.0 03/10>

Renault Clio 1.2 06/05>

With fuel systems becoming more modular, there are an increasingly large number of components within one single unit. In order to source high-quality parts that fit first time, it is important that garages know where they can find all parts within the fuel system. It is crucial that all parts are working at a high performance level so that the combustion process and engine management system as a whole work optimally from the first installation.

Fittings included (where required):

  • Strainers
  • Gaskets
  • Hose clamps
  • Washers
  • Plug and connecting wires
  • Sleeves
  • Connecting rubber hoses

Common Faults

Fuel pumps are a non-serviceable item. As long as they are not leaking, they won’t be checked for wear-and-tear or any other damage. If a faulty fuel pump goes undetected, there can be negative consequences for the fuel system and the running of the vehicle.

Faulty fuel pumps can cause:

  • loss of engine power at high speeds or under heavy loads,
  • loud noise emitted from the pump and
  • ignition problems and failure to start.

Causes for failure can be down to fuel tank contamination, a blocked fuel filter, a torn or degraded diaphragm.

Electrical fuel pumps suffer if the fuel level runs too low as the pump has to work harder to maintain the high pressure that modern injection systems require. Fuel is also needed to cool and lubricate the system and the wear rate can significantly increase when there is not enough fuel available.

Electrical pumps must be checked for rust on the connectors as this will affect the signal reaching the pump. Care must be taken to make sure all hoses and pumps are reconnected before turning on the ignition. A damaged fuse will also mean fuel pumps fail to operate.

Cambiare’s fuel pumps restore original system pressure, engine power, provide a smoother running and improve start up. Customers can be confident they are choosing the right solution by selecting Cambiare fuel line products.

Cambiare customers also benefit from a 2 year/ 30,000 mile warranty; online catalogue with comprehensive options and competitor cross-references; dedicated technical support hotline on 0845 543 8280; promotional/ technical materials via www.cambiare-ve.com.
