Well, I've been a mechanic on various motor veficles and stationary machinery for over 40 years. The first thing you do is usually dis-connect all power sources. Just about every fuel injected vehicle has the filter in the tank, ahead of the pump.

  Currently I drive a 1999 Dodge 1500 Ramvan and have had to drop the 32 gallon tank. The filter is right there at the $400 pump assembly, and helps keep the motor working a long time, as the fuel usually flows right through the electric motor.

  After dropping the tank for a no-fuel pressure problem, it turned out the MCU wasn't turning on the pump at all, so I had to replace that $680 MCU .

I agree with you, but REQUIRING that be done.....knowing some people are not that bright...is just asking for trouble.

I agree with the authors comments that this was not a good location for a Load Center or Distribution Panel.  But on the same note anyone dealing with Electricity or anything flamable/combustable regardless of proximity to said flamable/combustable materials the Batery or electrical source should be disconnected prior to initiating work.
