the daughter came by and remarked that she smelled diesel fuel
. We don't smell it unless the boat has been closed up for a day or so. So it's isn't real bad.
While looking for source of smell, I found no leaks
on main tank or lines. But I did find that the installer of the diesel
genset and separate tank, did something I don't understand. He ran one 1/2" fuel
line out of the tank, then installed a T. Off of the T he took one leg to the generator
, and one line to the vent!!!!!!!!!!!!! This just seems wrong in so many ways. I am not a fluid engineer
, but I don't understand how the vent would work if the line is full of fuel running to the gen. Or why doesn't the generator
suck air from the vent line across the T.
What am I not seeing or understanding?
