Hello and Welcome to justanswer..

These valves are one way valves yes - and they work independently.

Once the fluid / diesel has passed through - the valve will just close on its own and stop the diesel from returning to the tank...


I Sincerely XXXXX XXXXX have helped you - Please ask me if you need more help...


Kind Rgds, MIKE
