Fuel Pump

Here's a new one. On my list of issues for the E420 I'm seriously considering is the electric fuel pump back by the fuel tank. It is quite loud when the car is running. The car is insulated enough that you don't really hear it in the car, unless you know what you are listening for. But, from outside the car, it's quite noticable. I would even say it sounds "wrong". I would think at a traffic light, people in a car next to me might even tell me I have something wrong. Is this normal? This car has 55,000 miles and will have a Starmark warranty.

By the way, they ordered a part for the clunky steering column. We'll see if it fixes it.
