This will probably completely relieve your symptoms, but you should 
also install a crash safety switch that will turn off the power to 
the electric pump in case you're in an accident. You don't want the 
pump to keep running if you're knocked out. These switches are 
standard in modern cars, so replacements can be purchased at your 
local FLAPS for under $20. That's very cheap insurance that could 
save your life.
