2000 Outback Legacy fuel pump

Questions: Besides the fuel pressure regulator, what keeps the pressure from bleeding back to the tank?
Is the pressure supposed to stay up after shutdown?
P.S. It sure would be nice to find a good repair manual for Subarus newer than '96.

Yeah I'd think pressure shouldn't go right to 0 after you shut off the car.
Your gas cap is on and working properly right?
When you installed the pump, everything went back together ok?
BTW, how much did you pay for the carquest pump?

The pump installation was rather straightforward; the pump price was $97.
The Carquest strainer is a little mis-shaped and presses against the bottom of the tank, causing noise. So a strainer from a Subaru dealer is probably the best choice.
I assume that the two things that would hold pressure are a check valve in the pump and the fuel pressure regulator. Is this correct?
