I'm looking for APU fuel pump location for A320 aircraft series. I'll be much appreciated if you provide a link to some images, schemes.

According to the image below it seems that the APU fuel pump at the aft side of the center fuel tank.

And this is the view from inside the center fuel tank looking aft:

Note the pump still draws fuel from the left line, and not the center tank, it activates automatically if the left side engine fuel pumps don't provide the required pressure.

  • $\begingroup$ thank you! Really appreciate it. I mean the APU has its own fuel pump somewhere on APU assembly. Or it's only near crossfeed valve? Is there fuel pump on APU under the tail? $\endgroup$ – Victor Chernobay Sep 17 '18 at 13:47

    $\begingroup$ @VictorChernobay, there is no point in having a pump in the tail, because that is too high. Liquid pumps are generally pretty bad at pumping gases, so they need to be below the level of the liquid to start—otherwise they'd be full of air and they can't suck the fuel in in such case—which means near the bottom of the tank. $\endgroup$ – Jan Hudec Feb 5 at 21:50
