To be honest with you I don't think it is really pressurised at all. I can't recall ever even hearing a hiss or the fuel spraying in any way if I had to remove a line from the system and broke a seal. All it is, is a loop. You'll get more spill and smells without it.

We don't have a day tank in our application. We have a low pressure pump plumbed in to the main fuel supply line after the Racor filter. It's convenient. I don't worry about how to manually transfer fuel from one container to another. I still spill milk at the dinner table when filling my glass so a day tank for diesel wouldn't work for me.
SteveCox's suggestion sounds interesting too, depending on how often you run your motor.

|SteveCox||I have seen some diesel day tanks plumbed to the return from the engine to the tank. The return line goes from the engine to the tank and when it is full there is a return line to the main fuel tank that way the day tank is filled every time you run the engine. It seemed pretty convenient to me.|

|Stillraining||So if you dont have a day tank does that mean a Diesel heater has to have an electrical pump running all the time to feed it? IF so this is another wrench in the cog-works...Ray mentioned a pump but I thought that was for daily transfer to an internal tank or something...The pictures of the Dickerson's appeared to have a small tank mounted on the front?..I guess I really need to sit down with him and have it all explained.|
