Since SOMEONE is gonna say it, I guess I'll be that person. Don't run your tank that low, that's how you avoid it. In-tank fuel pumps are cooled by the liquid fuel that they are submerged in. Once you get that low, the potential to overheat the pump and decrease it's life is exponential. And the focus tank is not the most fun tank to drop.
