The submersed pump in the tank, is a low pressure pump designed to supply the external pump. Its purpose is to provide the volume of fuel to the external pump.
The external pump is where the pressure is made. The V dub Cabby needs a pretty hefty pressure, something like 65 -75 lbs.
The pressure pump can not pull fuel from the tank, but if it has a volume of fuel delivered, it can make a buttload of pressure.
A tell tale sign that the in Tank Pump (also called delivery pump) is not working, is that the pressure pump will make a loud whining sound, as it is overworked trying to pull the fuel out of the tank and make pressure too.
Fact is stranger than Fiction
