I personally would try to fix this issue. If the pressure is bleeding off with multiple pumps I wouldnt suspect the pump. I helped my brother fix a van that would lose pressure as soon as you turned it off. We ran a flow test and found the pump wasnt meeting minimim flow requirements. After taking the tank out and inspecting the lines inside the tank we found the pressure line from the pump to the hat inside the tank had a small hole in it causing the issue. You could have the same issue. We replaced the line and the van has never ran better. Ive never seen a fuel injected car do that unless there is an issue. If you turn the key to the run position and prime it a few times how quickly does the gauge go back to 0? My car holds about 25lbs with the key on not running for quite some time.
