Yes I've done it myself with a webasto heater but I tee'd into the fuel line and it's doesn't work I'm going to have to drop the tank and install a separate fuel pick up pipe from the sender I tried to cut corners and it didn't work. But yes 1 of the pipes goes to your heaters I think it comes from the head does a loop under the van then back to the heaters. I had to install a new electric water pump as mine was guffed. What are those heaters you've mentions are they electric of diesel fired?

Unfortunately for me I don't have a drive way and I have to park on the street and I don't think the law with let string a mains cable across the pavement plus someone would tap in to it and heat there house haha.

Much easier then the Webasto or Eberspacher type though.T:

teeing into a T4 fuel line should work on a T4, depends where you install the tee piece. dropping the fuel tank shouldn't be necessary!
