EA82 running with no fuel pump

I've always thought a car needed a pump to move the fuel since the tank is in the back and lower then the engine, but apparently not.

The fuel pump circuit is protected by a 15 amp fuse, so that makes sense, I guess.

it cant get fuel from below the carb up to the carb witout some kind of pump. you must have tested it wrong. gravity doesnt work like that.
Its all about suction. Every time I take my gas cap off the tank is pressurized. On the engines in our boats, some guys run with out a fuel pump. once you get that fuel line full of fuel, it will suck its own fuel (to a certain point) my car bogged down hard at higher RPMS.
To test it I pulled the fuel line off, started the car and watched for fuel to come out of the fuel line. Nothing came out at all with the old pump on.
Installed the new one, fuel sprayed everywhere. Most noticable on the upper RPMS.
