Re: diesel stop solenoid

Yup that is true on the older Mech fuel systems. The introduction of electronic controlled injectors rendered that all but gone these days.

I removed my fuel solenoid long ago. I just did not want the power drain while sailing.
In run mode the solenoid is energized all the time and pulls a lot of power. Id rather use that power for more important things like ....the radio of such. lol
