Alloy housing, 2 year warranty, 40K hours life expectancy, 4PSI output. Seems like they are widely considered the best for no performance applications. Also folks find them to be remarkably quiet.
I reached out to them today to get the specifications.

Downside to this design is in is not self priming and requires constant fuel flow. Stay tuned!

My old tank was leaking in several places, so in addition to the other issues, I had hoped I might see 20+ mpg on my normal commute after doing all this work.

When I was done, I first put about a gallon in just to see if there were leaks, and to get the thing started. The gas light was on, and sender was way down past 1/8 tank. I then put about 5 gallons into the tank and confirmed that the sender showed 1/4 tank. I drove off about three gallons, then filed up right when the gas light started to blink on bumps. This was with about 1/8 showing on the gauge, and it too 22 gallons. I just now filled up again when the needle got just below 1/2 tank. Part because I wanted to see what the sender was saying vs. reality, and part because I was impatient to get a new mpg figure.

I?m now at 17.3 mpg. 230 miles for 13 gallons......

I believe someone on here posted this pump as a good electrical option. So is 30 gph @ 4.5 psi about what we are looking for?

EDIT: I may be able to find the answer in the thread started by Chris.
