Gas/Diesel tank conversion

Anyone have success using a combined tank vent and diesel return? Trying to avoid putting in another tank penetration when converting to diesel.

Our mechanic did for our engine -Yanmar 2QM15- for a polishing/ self bleeding loop. Tee'd into the vent line a few inches above the tank. Has worked like a charm for over a year, & the price was sure right.
Good luck with the install.
