Embolisms in the fuel lines? Rubbish. If that's the case, heavy seas sloshing the tanks
around when you are a quarter full would have done the same thing.
The return line to the tank is pressurized, and no air is going to overcome your injector pump
pressure. If you are draining fuel from near the bottom of the tank, isn't it then going into a completely separate canister in the form of a fuel filter
? I have to wonder about some of these answers.
There's no safety
reason not to leave a diesel running while refueling. You couldn't ignite a puddle of this fuel with a match.And it's most definitely NOT illegal everywhere in the world. Just in some of the major nanny states.
PLEASE tell me that you wore your hazmat suit, gloves, respirator, and ANSI approved safety
goggles while refueling!!!! And that you had someone standing by with the proper category and recently inspected fire extinguisher, and that they have been properly trained, and certified in the use of that fire extinguisher.
Did you have a note from your doctor stating that it's safe for you to be in proximity of diesel fumes, which are known by the State of California
to cause cancer? Did you inspect the seals
, licenses, and certification
dates on the fuel pump
