I'm no expert, but I think you're referring the the difference between the amount of fuel pumped to the injectors vs the amount actually consumed (i.e. sprayed into the cylinders and burned). The "overflow" (fuel not burned) is then returned to the fuel system, sometimes to the tank, sometimes it loops back to the engine fuel filter or some other point in the engine's fuel lines. The specific overflow rate will vary by engine type, HP, etc.
