Prep work for all the 2018 drives - new fuel pump 

Just as D2 transmissions become hand grenades at 150k miles, the fuel pumps are generally good for somewhere around 90k-100k miles before they go out. My original pump went out at about 88k miles and left me on the side of the road in the middle of the night - really hated being driven home in the cab of a tow truck. But owning a D2 is a series of lessons learned. The fuel pump and housing is scary expensive (think $900-1200 plus labor), but the most expensive part is the housing. Once I saw how it was configured after having it replaced, I kept the original parts. And, although the current fuel pump seems to functioning very well, I'm not going to let the car strand me again for the same reason.

The trick is to only replace the innards - the actual pump itself plus seals, etc - and reuse the original housing. Pump and parts for about $350, plus some labor instead of a grand plus labor. So I ordered the new pump and related parts and delivered same and the old housing to my favorite mechanic. Then I brought him the car to keep while I'm out of town. When the pump is finished, he'll replace the one currently in the car with the "new" one (saving the housing to be rebuilt in about 90k miles for the next changeout), and also replace the fuel filter and do an oil service.

I'll collect the car when I return in early December. First road trip the week before Christmas is to Grayton Beach, FL (about 500 miles round trip) for a week followed by the first race trip of 2018 to Daytona for the Rolex 24 (about 1200 miles round trip) at the end of January.

Interesting for you
