Federal-Mogul Supplies Advanced Electronic Fuel Pumps to International(R) Truck and Engine Corporation

05.11.2001

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Federal-Mogul Corporation (NYSE: FMO) has begun supplying new electronic fuel level equalization pumps to International Truck and Engine Corporation for medium-duty trucks with dual fuel tanks.

The new system consists of an advanced microprocessor embedded in an

electric fuel pump. The microprocessor reads signals from a fuel level sensor

in the truck's auxiliary fuel tank, and instantly activates the pump to move

fuel from the auxiliary tank to the main tank while the truck is moving.

This system is designed to be less complicated and more reliable than

conventional systems, which typically consist of gear-driven pumps and

multiple fuel supply and return lines, according to Steve Feeny, Federal-Mogul

vice president responsible for fuel pump manufacturing operations.

Federal-Mogul is producing the new pumps at its manufacturing plant in

Logansport, Indiana. The pumps initially are being used on International's

4000 Series trucks, which are used for delivery and other applications and

have dual fuel tanks holding up to 55 gallons of fuel each.

"Applying electronic fuel level equalization technology in these trucks

will result in improved reliability and convenience for the vehicle operator,"

Feeny said.

In Logansport, Federal-Mogul has a manufacturing plant with more than 400

employees, and manufactures in-tank electric fuel delivery modules, on-engine

fuel vapor separator/electric fuel pump modules, in-tank pump/hanger

assemblies, and electric and mechanical lift pumps. Federal-Mogul markets

these products under the Carter(R) brand name. Federal-Mogul also has a

dedicated research and development center in Logansport that supports

advancements in fuel systems technology and product applications.

Headquartered in Southfield, Michigan, Federal-Mogul is an automotive

parts manufacturer providing innovative solutions and systems to global

customers in the automotive, heavy-duty, small engine and industrial markets.

The company was founded in 1899.
