Hey all, I've got a 2011 LR4 with approximately 138,000 miles. This past week I took my vehicle in for new tires and they discovered that I had a gas leak that I'm guessing I've been driving around with for about 2 weeks...
:dunno:


I took my vehicle in to Land Rover to have them inspect as there are few local shops that work on LR's and I needed a loaner vehicle. They got back to me with a quote saying that the fuel pump, fuel
tank flange and gasket/O-ring needed to be replaced with the price out the door being about $2100. I've also reached out to another shop in Michigan seeing if they are available for the work but I haven't heard back. I followed up with the service advisor at LR asking why the fuel pump needed to be replaced if it wasn't a failed unit and they basically said due to the age of the vehicle they recommend it being changed out. From anyones experience here, is the fuel pump known to fail on these vehicles at around 150,000 miles or so? Or known the fail during the lifetime of the vehicle? Honestly, outside of the gas leak the truck is running great. I've been getting about 18-19 mpg's on highway with 15-16 around town. But if it's prone to fail in the next 10,000 miles I'd rather pay for the labor now and get it over with.

Would love to do the flange and o-ring by myself as it looks like an easy job, but unfortunately do not have any extra time with my work schedule right now.

Appreciate everyones help!

Stop. The pump is probably fine. It’s the flange. I had same issue and had flange replaced for 300 at Indy shop. 2100 is straight up ridiculous.
