Found this video very interesting re submerged fuel pumps.
Might also be an option for higher vapour pressure fuels such as automotive or mogas as it is a modern "push" type pump.

Could also put the fuel drain valve into the bottom of the vertical header, if mounted low down, as it will be an automatic water trap
