This is going to take a bit of time, but if you are patient with me I'll get you through this. The fuel pump and engine control systems are kinda broad answers.
Ok first have you let the fuel level get very low many times? If so you could have burnt up the electric fuel pump, Ok there is one possibility you can just unplug the fuel pump connector back near the tank and see if the problem goes away.
I would like to see you unplug the two front 02 sensors and see if the problem goes away , see the 02 sensors have heaters in them and are full battery voltage as soon as you hit the key, if they short out they will take out the fuse, fuse #8 is inside the car, which feeds the fuse box under the hood Do these tests and get back to me.

How do I stop my efi fuse from blowing repeatedly. Just changed the fuel pump and now that fuse keeps blowing.

What about your fuel rail regulator, which is in the tank with the fuel pump on some cars? Does it have a pressure switch/sensor that isn't telling the engine control module to shut the pump off when the rail pressure is obtained? If you turn the vehicle to on (not start) and the pump runs more than a couple seconds, like until the fuse blows, it could be either a stuck pump relay or worse, the fuel pump control signal. Pull the pump relay, add a new fuse and see if the pump runs with the key in the on position again, which it shouldn't. If it doesn't run, the issue is either the relay, or the control signal to the relay that is keeping the pump on all the time, causing the fuse to blow.

It sounds to me like the pressure is going to high and stalling or slowing the pump causing excessive current from the motor and blowing the fuse. If that's the case your old pump might not have been the problem. How's the fuel filter? That's in line with the fuel line to the fuel rail?

You don't have to answer the questions, just look into them for your own peace of mind.

There is a wire grounding somewhere ,more than likely on the engine.

1993 Buick Roadmaster keeps on blowing fuel pump/ecm in-line 20 amp fuse. Car stalled out in a parking lot, would not start, no fuel. Changed fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel pump relay. Found fuel pump/ecm...

Sorry to say it could also be a faulty ECM. The ecm uses circuit boards to provide grounds to a bunch of components and can short out internally.
Most of those components can fail and cause the same problem by causing a short "thru" the ECM. Things like injectors, O2 sensors, and so on.
I doubt you will find the problem without a book and some test equipment.

On my secondary fuse box which is not labeled the number six fuse blows when I turn the key on immediatly. Seems to be something to do with fuel?

If its the fuel pump it may be froze up causing an overlaod on the circuit that would blow the fuse thats if it is for the fuel pump. The fuel pump turns on as soon as you turn the key on the other option is you have a short that would also cause the fuse to blow if you could look in the owners manual and find out exactly what the fuse feeds i could help you better but that is the best advise for the info you have right now. thank you

Blowing fuses jeep wont start

use a circuit breaker or paper clip with pliers so you do not burn yourself use paper clip as fuse unplug engine controll sensors 1 at a time and check if problem is gone after each one is unplugged an engine controll sensor is most likely shorting out if you have a map sensor try that first then move on to other components tps,fuel pump ect. till you find wich is fauly causeing short this should help you just be carefull with paperclip am saying to do this instead of blowing expensive fuses

Fuel pump system

There is power at the fuel pump for aprox 3 seconds as soon as the ignition switch is turned on
then it does not get power again until the engine starts

so if you are checking the power at the pump you need to have someone else in the car to turn on the switch while you are looking at your meter , you have a relay under the hood under a plastic cover at the fire wall that controls the power to the pump .
