The Mechanics of the Bosch 044 Fuel Pump
The Bosch 044 fuel pump (otherwise known as the Bosch Universal Inline 300 LPH) is a beauty as far as inline pumps go. It’s usually mounted on the outside of a vehicle’s gas tank, underneath and near the back center area.
Whenever great demands are made on a car or truck, the need for efficient fuel delivery and the maintenance of a proper air/fuel ratio increases. That’s where the Bosch pump comes in. Its main purpose is to provide at least 300 LPH of continuous fuel flow to the vehicle in question to help sustain its performance over the long haul.
Specs-wise, the Bosch 044 fuel pump weighs a little over two pounds; it runs a minimum current of 12 volts. Its high temperature reduction measures 30 LPH, and it operates at a pressure level of 72.5 PSI. Inlet and outlet fuel connections are at M18 x 1.5 and M12 x 1.5, respectively.
Interestingly, this inline pump is comparable to the Walbro 255LPH. Both of these pumps can handle up to 600 or 700 horsepower support for vehicles. The former may also be used in sequence with either a Bosch 040 or an in-tank Walbro. It’s also possible to use two 044s for up to an impressive 1200 horse power for turbocharged applications.
These days, a Bosch 044 model may be purchased online for around US$200. When hunting for one, customers would be wise to look for a dealer that offers guarantees that match the excellent nature of the product itself.
