fuel boost pump
- An auxiliary fuel pump used in an aircraft fuel system to provide fuel at the required pressure to the carburetor or to the fuel-metering unit of a fuel injection system. The pump also is meant to purge the fuel lines of any vapors, to prime the cylinders for start up, and to supply fuel if the engine-driven pump fails.
