Can you install and outsidelectric full pump and eliminate the one inside the gas tank?

never seen a pump INSIDE a gas can't be electricaltherefore a mechanical pump is pretty much a problem putting it INSIDE.Therefore, an OUTSIDE pump (mechanical or electrical) is pretty much the only option.There is fuelpumps inside gas tank's.The reason the fuel pump is inside is pretty much to prevent fires or explosions.If you ever felt gasoline you can tell is cold therefore when you put the fuel pump submerged in gasoline the fuelpump does not overheat because the gasoline itself keeps it cool.If you install an outside fuelpump you run the risk of your engine stalling because the gasoline can evaporate in the lines same thing would happen if the fuel pump was to be close to the engine this is true on mechanical pumps used by carburated automobile engines.

Why do i Smell gas outside car not inside?

Take a second, lightly sniff gasoline fumes before its been burned, then compare with exhaust fumes, and see which you are smelling. Exhaust fumes you'll naturally smell around an idling car. unburned gasoline could be the result of an improperly set carb, mixing the wrong amounts of fuel and air, leaving you with unburned gasoline that is boiled, evaporated, and spit out the exhaust. Too much evaporated gas turns your exhaust black, so ive been told, so there could be a sign.

Why when you have a cold hold your nose or smoke food loses its flavor?

When you have a cold or hold your nose, food seems to lose its flavor because the area inside the top of your nasal cavity which does the smelling has less exposure to the food molecules which create the food's odor.
