The guy is complaining about his fuel pump, not his charging system. A decent 12V fuel pump here is $65 minimum; repop mechanical pump is $42 and I have sold 12 of them without return or issue in the last 3 years. I get that you don't like generators, but your "fix" isn't practical unless the pump and charging system are both down. If you are worried about the generator supplying enough to run the electric pump, you should also be concerned with the low-rent gas ignition switch carrying the necessary current. Unless of course you need to add a relay as well. More cost & complexity.
Give me a new mechanical pump and a half to a full hour to swap it in and I can get on with my life.

Like I said in round one... if the electrics were adequate I'd be ~inclined~ to install an electric pump.
Either way it's not a big deal to me. One thing I am sure of... is that given enough time both the electric pump and the mechanical pump will fail again at some point. Just a personal preference that I'd rather slip two rubber lines over the hose barbs and attach a wire rather than grub around that front cover.
