How many years run time do you get from ten litres :)
No, they have a one way breather valve in the cap. My 2kW can use up to 0.24L an hour.

Re: Where to mount an eber in an Aircooled

Is there a reason people are not taking a feed from the main fuel tank? If you are fitting a Diesel heater and have a petrol engine you can't. And you can run the Diesel heater on cheaper Red Diesel or Kerosene home heating oil @ around 60p per litre. Ah, ok. I have petrol so bought a petrol heater...

Re: Fuel pump

Fit the 1.5-4psi pump then, it pumps the same volume of fuel as the higher pressure pump just at lower pressure.

Re: Fuel pump

Depends on which pump pressure it is? 1.5-4 psi no need, 4-6psi you need a reg.

Re: Where to mount an eber in an Aircooled

Most fit them under the R&R bed, mines in a side cupboard where the Propex was. And you only need a small bodied 2kW for our climate.
