190K miles is a pretty good life for an electric fuel pump. My '88 Escort with 505K miles on it is on it's 3rd of 4th fuel pump, I don't remember which. Running the tank low on fuel is supposed to be one of the biggest causes of premature fuel pump failure, because the gas in the tank helps prevent the pump from overheating.
