    I'm thinking about upgrading from a manual hand pump to a 12 volt electric pump on the fuel transfer tank on the my truck. I read that the minimum operating temperature is -15 F (-26C). It gets colder than that here once in a while and I was wondering if anybody has had any problems with their pumps in cold weather. My hand pump has the same spec and I have never had any trouble with it in the cold.

    Never realized there was a min temp, mine hasn't give me a problem other than the nozzle getting snow/water in it & freezing and having to dump some heat in it to clear it out
