what about the electric fan.... i dont believe i would use it for my fuel pump because if you forget to turn it off there goes all the gas.... i actually had to put a toggle switch on my fan because it went out..... simple to do... but why do you want to have a toggle switch on it if it is not needed

Putting an extra switch in for the fuel pump actually adds anti-theft capability (unless you label the switch "Fuel Pump").Check the rating of the switch - some have fairly low amperage ratings and will burn up under the load (especially high amp loads like driving/fog lights). You can still use it, just control the device with a relay (http://www.waytekwire.com/automotive-relays.htm)Here are some wiring tips and examples: http://www.offroaders.com/info/tech-...ays/relays.asp
