    Look like they are still made in USA. Accelerator pump is also blue which usually means race fuel and ethanol resistant. 909.JPG 908.JPG

    That pump isn't worth two squirts of duck poop. No crimped on retainer to keep the shaft from pulling out of the plastic, no garter spring to keep the seal in constant contact with the pump bore, and that "soft" light blue seal will fail like all the others in this new fuel. It will either swell up and start sticking in the pump bore or fall off and get wound up in the return spring... !cid_20EB8DAE1DAB47B0AECC3BD187ECD500@CliffsHPPC.png ....FWIW....

    Mines been OK so far but no race gas has been in it. Also no ethanol yet. It could be the same as the black cup just used blue to make it appear to be better.

    Usually that means the box is made in the USA, NOT the contents!!!

    True. I love it when the package says assembled in the USA or engineered in the USA.
    Also bought a seal once and the box said made from US and foreign content. It had China molded into it.
