My question is this...why do you suggest an in-tank one instead of this seemingly less complicated alternative?
I did not suggest an in-tank one for an FJ60. I suggested a pusher pump at the tank, but not inside it. My daughter's 60 has such an arrangement. It would be a huge PITA to modify the tank to accept an in-tank pump such as is common for fuel injected rigs.
