My dad moved his area of operation to New Mexico and had a 80's Ford 1ton van loaded with tools and parts for school seating. He ended up with an electric fuel pump and a splash of deisel fuel in every tank.It raises the boiling point a little.New cars use a return system keeping only enough fuel to maintain presure. An electric pusher pump is a step to avoid vapor locks. Another step is to install a recircutlating fuel system. I used a Barry Grant diaphram adjustable fuel log.It telescoops to fit any carb length.I have it supplying a set of single inlet dual four Holleys . It returns fuel not needed to maintain the desired pressure. It has fresh fuel recirculating in the log just an inch away from the carb inlets .
