How much was the pump that Dr. Jay bought? You may want to put in an aftermarket pump.. even though you may probably never need the power of one, it couldn't hurt.

an aftermarket pump wouldnt suprise me if it ran u over 300 easy, a GM OEM one will last a long time normally if you care for it, as in dont run it on fumes lol.
At your discresion however.

Default 94 , New Fuel pump in tank, still stalls

Don't think by putting in a 94 tank will fix the problem, as mine stalls when low on fuel, by turniing or coming to a stop.

95'* will work.... I get really low on fuel (quite often lately for some reason) and I don't have that problem ever. And I've had that gauge BOTTOMED out before....

agreed with the 95 tank ive never stalled and run with the light on before, but I do hate the gauge with a full tank it takes FORVER to go down to a quarter tank but then after no more than 20 miles the gas light will be on after a quarter is hit so now I try and gas it up at a quarter.

Ive had this problem with several of my GMs though....my current Regal is the only one without the gravitationaly influenced gas gauge needle, my last Regal (a 91) was the worst I ran it out of gas one time cause I parked it facing downwards on a hill, it read better than a quarter tank when I parked it but it sure wouldnt start after I got back in!!!

My tank > all. I have a 45* incline to get into my driveway, and I can have the gauge sitting at E, make it up the driveway, and not stall. There was construction on a bridge, and I was sitting at at least 30*-40* incline, and shut off the engine.. this too was with the gauge sitting at E, and she started right up, and took off. Maybe you should look for an 87-91 tank, Alex .

I try not to let my tank get below a quarter. Only once did I let it get past a quarter and I was on an entrance ramp and changing lanes when the car decided to sputter for fuel. After that I try to keep gas in it. I don't want it getting so low that it will start sucking up crap from the bottom of the tank either.

So, it sounds like a 95 tank would work. Anybody know where I could get a new/used SSEi pump. And the PN# of a new pump would be useful too. Thanks to all of those who have been helping out with this.
