Yes, that is true, but go ahead and read his question. He is asking if the amperage draw is going to heat the fuel. The answer is a resounding no. Yes running parallel pumps can see some fuel heating, but again. Not what he was asking.
More current drawn by the same pump means more power wasted as heat in its electric motor. It is nowhere close to 100% efficient at converting electric energy into mechanical energy.
