Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: OT question on a fuel pressure regulator

I had to change the electric fuel pump on our Ecuadorian built Chevrolet micro van. The replacement pump is fixed at 15 psi but the van only requires 4 psi and the OE or a compatible pump are unavailable so it's internet ordering time. There are several adjustable regulators available but state "not for use with ethanol or leaded gasoline". I can understand non compatibility with ethanol, but don't know enough if our leaded gas here would do any damage. I have sent e-mails to the two I am interested in but have yet to get a reply re: compatibility with leaded gas. What do those in the know say?

Hi Randall and thanks! Is this the one? It is one of the two similar I was considering. So no issues with leaded gas?

I bought one made by Holley. A really nice unit. Sorry, at work so I don't have the info handy. I used one as pictured above. It leaked and sprayed my whole engine compartment with gasoline. I don't imagine they all do that, but I wouldn't own another one. Was very lucky!

Pretty sure that this is the Holley unit I bought:

The 12-803 goes from 4.5 - 9 PSI.

Thanks Jerry, that is the type of info that I want too, good and bad. It appealed to me because of the dial design. Ideally the van requires 3.5 to 4.5 psi. Thanks to you both for replying.
