Just rigging up a temp fuel tank ahead of breathing new life into an old diesel. Does fuel return line need to sit below the level of the diesel in the tank or is it ok just to have it drainng into the tank above the level of the diesel.
Cheers for any comments etc

I think it has to be below. The pickup pipe and return are rigid pipes of the same length that run to almost the bottom of the tank. Would air not end up in the fuel system if it were above? Not entirely sure.

Do you have all the fuel pipes and old tank still?

Finally managed to throw off the grandkids - went and checked the tank and both pipes still in situ - same length notwithstanding the mesh over the out line , so will work on the basis that they both need to be covered. Good call and thanks again.
