I have owned the car for 11 years, put 63,000 miles on it. Never once had a starting issue caused by this topic. If the engine stalls or stops for any reason, the pumps stop immediately!

The car still retains the factory several second run on delay when you turn of the engine...all the normal stuff, just none of the headaches.

Sure if the engine is running and a fuel line gets severed, it's going to keep pumping until low fuel pressure shuts down the engine.....but the yellow relay won't save you there anyway. The yellow relay mainly deals with overboost protection, not crash protection. The only crash protection we have is our feet on the pedals and our heads not up our ass.

The run on delay is from the time delay relay that controls the CDI.

If you have the airflow plate sensor in the circuit the fuel pumps ground through that so it should shut off for you.
