Went Through Fuel Pumps Like Candy

1998 Chevrolet C/K 3500 Series K3500 Silverado 2dr Regular Cab 4WD LB
This was my work truck. Traded it in last year. It had 86,000 miles on trade-in. If it wasnt for 4 fuel pumps going out during the span I owned the vehicle I would have liked this vehicle better. The fuel pump w labor cost $650. Ouch! I was told by the dealer that the reason was I needed to change my gas filter every 12K. I was changing fuel pumps every 12K! Power came from a 454 cu v8. Was underpowered for pulling trailers which I do alot of. Mileage was about 12 mpg highway.
Power Seats, Power Windows. Ride quality. Adequate mileage.
Chevy needs to improve their fuel pumps. It has been an ongoing issue on their light duty truck line up for quite some time. Better clearance
