Good idea to wire fuel pump this way?

Before i started rewiring my car, the power feed for the electric fuel pump was crimped into the battery cable where it connected to the post. Could i just wire it to the ACC terminal on the fuse box? If i did it this way would the fuel pump turn on when i start the car and turn off when i turn the car off? And would it get the 12V it needs? Thanx for any help.

another good method, which i think is the safest is:

acc(+)-----oil pressure switch-------fuel pump----(-)

if you simply wire it to acc then you will be pumping gas when the key is turned--even if your car is not running!!! with this method the car has to be turned on AND running. in CA it is illegal to have a toggle switch controlling your fuel pump...if you get in an accident, who's gonna turn it off???
