I've got a couple thousand flight hours with dual (one electric, one
mechanical) fuel pumps. I have never had one fail, never mind two.




I have had the electric pump in my '67 Arrow fail once in 1200 hours (assuming it was original, had about 2800 hours on it at the time). I was at a remote location, swallowed hard and departed anyway.
