Electric oil pump

There is some talk about using electric water pumps to reduce the direct load on the engine, and to be able to keep things "watered" when EO(ff)C or after turning the engine off. Similarly, electric P/S motors, A/C compressors and vacuum pumps (for diesels) would also seem to help FE. What about oil pumps? What kind of load do they put on the engine? And would it be good to keep the oil flowing after the engine is killed? Two instances are for turbines and automatic transmissions.

What matters is where you're going, not how fast.
