I'm considering installing a day tank to my Yanmar
I normally cruise
at 7 knots and use 1.2 US gallon/ h.
My idea is to always use the day tank when motoring.
will always draw fuel
from the "storage tank" (100 gallons)
I have a manifold that makes it possible to use the the generator fuel
supply for the engine
in an emergency
What is the miniumun size for a day tank with regards to heating
up the fuel?
My tank will be around 25 gallons.
As I have two possible fuel supply for the engine
I need to switch the return when going in emergency
mode and take fuel directly from the storage
Is there a foolproof manifold that switches both functions at the same time?
What filtering is suggested?
Between the storage
tank and the day tank? Have in mind that the filters will also be used for fuel polishing.
Between day tank and the 10 micron on- engine filter?
