Abstract (en)

A fuel feed apparatus (20) includes two-circuit inlet lines that connect a fuel tank (2) with a pumping device (12). The pumping device (12) is outside of the fuel tank (2). The fuel feed apparatus (20) includes a fuel pump (30) that is received in the fuel tank (2). The fuel pump (30) constructs one inlet line of the two-circuit inlet lines for pumping fuel from the fuel tank (2). A pump suction filter (32) is provided to an upstream end of the one inlet line. The pump suction filter (32) connects with an inlet of the fuel pump (30) for removing foreign matters contained in fuel drawn into the fuel pump (30). A fuel pipe (70) constructs an other inlet line of the two-circuit inlet lines for introducing fuel from the fuel tank (2) toward the pumping device (12). A pipe suction filter (72) is provided to an upstream end of the other inlet line. The pipe suction filter (72) connects with an inlet of the fuel pipe (70) for removing foreign matters contained in fuel drawn into the fuel pipe (70).
