Default Gen-set fuel supply?

This weekend's bus project is to install a Webasto Thermo 90 in the rear driver side compartment of our FC. The fuel supply to the Webasto heater cannot be under pressure.

Does anybody know if the diesel fuel supply line for the generator (mine is a Yanmar) is under pressure? I am hoping the generator uses a separate line from the tank that is not pressurized.

Or, is it drawn from the same fuel line that feeds the Racor? It is my understanding that the fuel line to the Racor is under pressure from a facet pump.

I suppose it is possible to tap the tank itself but its full and I'm not too crazy about drilling into that beast.

I will be assisting a certified diesel mechanic with this project. He is a good heavy truck man but not familiar with Birds.

Your assistance is always appreciated.

Thanks - Bill
