    Walbro 255 Fuel Pump?

    Am I right in thinking a Walbro 255 fuel pump is not compatible with an S3 fuel pump with the duel pick up setup?

    if you reffer to the intank walbro pump, yes it's going to be a problem in the quattro tank setup.
    i use the 255 inline version, so no problems with that.

    Yes, in tank version, guess the guy who sold it to me didn't realise quattro's are dual pick up!

    He doesn't own a quattro, was taken off a LCR? I purchased it a while back! Should get my money back anyways.

    How does the dual pickup work?

    On the A4 platform, it uses a siphon jet pump in the return line to pull fuel across from the other side of the tank into the side where the pump/swirl pot is. This function works with any fuel pump.
