To tell you the truth Has been I have not had the pump off yet to check it. I was thinking of taking it off and having a look but not checked for cracks or the diaphragm. I must admit that I still ling the idea of the electric upgrade and too true Beans, the extra wire would be a good winter project. I have been looking all around but I must admit that this one is catching my eye:

You'll need a good quality pressure regulator with these. Don't ask me why I know :P
And a good size filter between pump and tank won't harm either.
But better follow Russ' advice in your other thread. This choice is overkill for a standard engine.
And it looks like a cheap copy of the original Facet pumps.

Here's the link for the technical data sheet:
I gather that you're concern is with the fuel/ethanol blends.
I doubt that the smaller percentages of say 10% used in the typical blend won't have any appreciable effect on the gasket sealant but I would be wary of using it on high percentage mixes or straight ethanol.
