I used my engine heater for the first time today, it leaked diesel fuel under the engine. It seemed to stop while I was running, but then leaked again when I turned the engine off.

Any thoughts

If you are not creating a smoke cloud, the diesel leak isn't in the combustion chamber. Start looking at the feed and return (? I can't remember if there is a return) lines: to do that look under and behind the left headlight and check if diesel is visiable on the top of the heater. If no diesel there, you are going to have the trace the leak back from the drop points.

There are a lot of diagrams available at the Espar website http://www.espar.com/htm/tecmans.htm. Also use search for Espar on this site and the YahooSprinterVan DIY link folder.
