    Esparcher night heater installation



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Hi guys
    After some advice on fitting my night heater in my T5. Hoping that possibly a few of you have already got 1 installed? Intend on fitting it under drivers seat. Advice im after please if anyone can help, it is a Fuel fed heater of which im hoping to T into main fuel filter suppy pipe which looks located along passenger side. My only concern was that if this low pressure side is fed by a scavenge pump in main fuel tank will the heater eventually drain the fuel pipe or will fuel be sucked up through scavenge pump itself?
    I would rather get my heater supply from somewhere that wont run dry aswell as give me starter issues next day.
    Any advice be greatly recieved. Thanks in advance.

    You need to remove the fuel tank and fit a stand pipe in the inspection cap in the top of the tank. This seems to be the only way as its a pressurised tank. My heater like most T5's is behind the floor plate underneath the van the return air drawn from the drivers door footwell. Have a look or join the VW T4 / 5 Forum for loads of threads on installing g Eberspachers some with photos.

    Can't help with full installation, but I would recommend you consider fitting a rubber or similar mount for the pump to help stop the ticking sound

    never a good idea to ''T'' off existing pipe. proper tank kits are about 20quid Eberspacher Ford Transit Fuel Pick Up/Sender/Connector Kit - Webasto - E7193 | eBay if you're any good at bodging you can probably manage without taking off the tank

    Eberspacher is the make of the heater you will not find Esparcher threads.

    It will be worth the effort to fit a dip pipe. then you can set the level of pick up and make sure you don't inadvertently run your tank dry. it also keeps your two fuel feeds separate so one can not effect the other. As Alf says I would mount outside underneath the van and save the space inside.

    Thanks for all the info guys. Always willing to ask advice if im unsure of something as this has proven. A stand pipe makes sense and will eliminate my concerns piping into fuel system. Thanks again everyone.

    Before you go buying a standpipe, a lot of modern vans already have a fuel take off point on the fuel tank sender, you just need to buy a suitable kit which consists of a small pipe with a seal and a push it connector that fits to the nipple already on the sender, the last two transits I've done I managed by just lowering the rear of the tank, you just need to cut the sealed top off the nipple to allow you to drop the small pipe and seal into before pushing the connector on, I got the kits from Butlertechnik after checking it out it seems it looks like the kit you probably need is a standpipe kit Eberspacher VW T5 T6 Fuel Tank Sender connector Standpipe Kit | E7162
