      I hope this is not the problem...
      "In cold weather, water in the fuel may freeze in the pump causing the circuit to overload and the fuse to fail."

      Researching at the moment...

      "The electrical current that operates the fuel pump is controlled by a relay and protected by a 15-amp fuse. This helps to handle the high current load of the pump and also ensures that the pump will not continue to run in the event of an accident or if the engine stalls. If, for any reason, electric power to run the pump is interrupted, the engine will not run."
