Default How many amps for a fuel pump

I am installing a toggle for the electric fuel pump, will a 20 amp switch be enough?

Take a look in your fuse box...I think it's 10 amps.

Since the factory fuse is 10 amps, i would think 20 amp switch is more than enough

If you use the switch to close the circuit on the primary side of the relay, it can be even smaller, still.

RACE ON!!!
