...and for good reasons. Modern pumps are IN the gas tank. They produce high pressure which eliminates vapor lock (no suction side). I like the idea of putting the electric pump as far back as possible; in that trunk void, just behind the rear wheels is good. I use the electric supply wires to disable the car. Hot wire the ignition any way you want, it's not going anywhere without gas.
