Default 2012 CCT fuel pump

Now who would have thought this would be what I saw when I went to change my fuel filter.



Yes... Made in China!

Seriously that surprises anyone now a days?

Everything is made in China they have no EPA no CARB no unions no OSHA, they use child and slave labor there willing to work 16hour days just to eat.

Most every American product is assembled with probably 90% Chienese parts.

Yup, no surprise on the Made In China sticker. Hard to find a lot that isn't these days.

But I'm curious, how many miles on your 2012 CCT and is mileage the reason for the change or did something else contribute?

All the best,

What really bugs me is a fuel pump like this for a car is under $50. For our Vic's it's up to $300. Cheaper if Rylan rebuilds it but still.

Just like adding the word marine to any part that's the exact same for a car but painted blue.

Just over 49K right now. I was noticing some issues. Guess the manual says change it at 30K. Oops.

Interesting how the manual says to change the filter at 30k and then again at 50k. Seems like it would stay on the same interval. Also seems like changing or having the fuel pump rebuilt would be a good idea somewhere around 50k-60k.

I plan on changing it out somewhere around 75K to 80K. At least its a fairly easy job to do. Only sucky part is having to deal with one fuel line when you're removing it from the tank. Good video on it over at Witchdoctors.

i changed mine just shy of 30,000 and it was pretty nasty, its a pain in the ass to do to, feels like you are going to break it to get it in and out of the tank.
