I lived in the U.S. for 35 years and the location fuel had to be considered on trips in the more remote places. 

Keeping the fuel pump cool and lubricated is something I've never thoughts about before.  Perhaps that comes about having started my motorcycling life in the gravity feed days when all you has was a petrol tap  :002:

I has a 1290 Superduke GT for a while and one of the many problems it had was a huge build up of pressure in the petrol tank if you stopped for fuel on a hot day, turned off the ignition but didn't open the petrol cap immediately.  Wait a minute in Texas heat for instance and you were greeted by a huge blast of petrol fumes in the face when the cap was opened to start fueling :005:
