I believe that the fuel pumps are more of a pressure pump than a flow pump due to the low flow requirements during operation. I would think that the fuel hose is a very large orifice (in comparison to fuel jets) which would not allow pressure to increase to a long shooting stream. A smaller opening would probably shoot farther.
On the other hand, I think that this might be a good way to kick start a stuck pump in the field if needed.
