    People see what they want to see. The evidence is there if you want to see it.

    The trick is finding the $30 pump that is identical to the $160 OEM pump.

    There is only one pump that is identical to the OEM pump. That is the Asin pump made by the OEM ma manufacturer that supplies Toyota.

    And even then, it is an assumption that the ones they sell into alternative distribution channels are in all respects identical to the ones they sell Toyota, held to the same QA standards, etc.

    All of life is a gamble. I consider Asin to be a good risk. Others, NO!
