Every system is unique. I'll tell you how mine works. Because I need a day tank for my diesel stove, I can fill it with a pulse pump or by return from injectors. It has a sight glass. The main tanks are vented thru this to outside.Because it's cold here the moisture from the air condenses in the day tank first and can be dealt with before it reaches either main tank by the drainable sump. Another line with it's own shut off and filter goes to the fuel manifold. If the unthinkable happens again I'll simply shut of the main fuel valve and open the day valve and be good for 4 more gallons TA DA!
