Description / Abstract:

This SAE Recommended Practice defines the minimum design verification teting required to verify the suitability of in-tank mounted electric motor driven fuel pumps used for pumping gasoline or gasoline blend fuels.

Additional test not specified in SAE J1537 will be required for frame mounted pump applications or pumps intended for use on aircraft, motorcycles, or marine equipment.


J1537 is intended to provide a nucleus of basic validation tests which the users and suppliers of electric fuel pumps agree are required to qualify a particular pump for use with automotive gasoline fuel injection systems. Numerous tests found in the unique specifications of both users and suppliers have been omitted from SAE j1537 because common agreement as to their value could not be reached. The seven basic test defined in Section 4 include the most expensive, most time-consuming tests in a validation program. Be providing an industry wide standard, SAE J1537 reduces the cost of validation to the benefit of all concerned. However, it is to be expected that the unique applications and experience of both users and suppliers will dictate that additional tests be conducted to complete qualification for any specific application.
