Energizing the Fuel Pump

All of the fuel system tests will require operation of the fuel pump to measure pressure, evaluate pressure decay, or perform the pressure at calibrated flow tests.

Although the fuel pump can be controlled with the ignition, this is fairly awkward for the following rea...
