[Lumps!] Question for Charlie and fellow listers

Recently we were discussing fuel switches and bleeding from one tank to
another. You mentioned using Techron as a possible fix. I’ve been watching
related post to this subject, and remember someone mentioning a fuel return
valve. Just curious if this is some sort of check valve? Could I possibly
install a check valve on each line that leads to the fuel tank valve switch
to eliminate bleeding between tanks? If so, is there a in-line type?

I got mine at an outboard/ marine motors parts store at the local boat Yard;
quite inexpensive in line type( I just cut each hose in the trunk) anbd they
work fine,
However, mine is a carbureted model; low fuel pressure type system, not
injected. They come in a couple of hose sizes, don’t remember what size mine
was.

Yes, Techron as a fix IF the cause is a gummed up changeover valve
that isn’t fully closing.

The fuel return valve, is a diverter valve which returns the fuel to the
tank it was drawn from.
It is not a check valve.

Yes there are check valves that can be installed, that go between the
fuel tanks, and the fuel pump.
This, is for either carburated , or fuel injected, ( with single
externally mounted fuel pump ) engines.
Make sure they are installed with the flow arrows facing the pump

Ascii art:

tank---- > pump < ----tank
|
engine

Also be sure the check valve is rated for fuel.
Do not use check valves, NOT designed for fuels.
