it is a very important thing for a engine as starving it of fuel by way of pressure or flow will cause detonation and ultimately engine failure.
Be very careful PeterN.

Hmmmm??? If the pressure is right, in corollary the flow must be right as well. I checked the pressure on this little valve and it had constantly between 3.8 and 3.9 bar (55 PSI) - no matter what rpm or load.

I'll try to find out the flow rate of the MEAT & DORIA pump. What are the GPH/LPH specs for the L-18 ?
