Default fuel pump question

Hey guys, tough question here. Yes i searched, but nothing satisfactory came up. I have a walbro fuel puimp, but i can't drive fast with less than half a tank or else the pump doesn't get the fuel because it's not long enough. Besides the 1000 dollar racing fuel scavenging thing, is there anything i can do to get the rest of the gas. I mean filling up every half tank isn't the end of the world, but it is annoying.

Hmm, I have the walbro pump too and I haven't had my gas gauge above half in months. No problems though... did you use the stock filter baggie thing, or one that came with the new pump?

the one that came with the pump i think, but would that even make a difference. do you think reinstalling it would help. W T F could it be. I've heard of other people having this problem too.

Just wondering, how much boost are you running? You may want to "downgrade" to a WRX OE pump. They're going for ~ $50 on the classified forum.
