I was told that only the veg should be coming out of the return line. D2 only when being purged. The bleed is for when the veg is running.

You were right. I swapped the CV and the solenoid and it still drips D2 out of the return line. Jay offered to send a new manifold but I declined. I don't see any reason why 1 cup/8 minutes of d2...

Well shoot. There are no other obvious signs of failure with either the CV or the solenoid. I sure hope it's not a damaged passage way. I should have the new parts early next week. I'll start by...

My first lasted about 2 years and was never grounded. I grounded my 1 month old one tonight and it's still not working. It lasted maybe 2 weeks. I'm hoping I didn't get a good ground but I suspect...

Thanks. The veg flow is a steady stream, not unlike taking a leak.
The D2 that returns to the veg tank while idling on D2 is a steady drip that equals 1 cup/8 mins. I know that is not normal so...

Thanks Dave. That is very helpful. Would you happen to know if it is normal to have a steady stream of veg oil returning to the veg tank while idling on veg?

I don't believe the d2 "leak" is enough to change the pressure. When my pressure gauge was working, the d2 was around 65. I set the veg at 75psi but it may be overly adjusted if the veg was...

So there should be no veg or d2 going to the return line at any time other then when the system is purging. Is that correct?

I know that one or the other is bad but because it behaves the same with different check valves, I suspect it's the purge solenoid. Zip tie wire to the sending unit and then bolt it to the frame? ...
