[DML] Fuel pressure/accumulator question



If the accumulator is bad and leaking back into the return line would 
it take longer for the pump to reach operating pressure?  This would 
constitute a fuel leak in the system except for that it does not vent 
out of the system correct? 

Example:

Assume the accumulator is good and not leaking back into the return 
line, if I put a tee in the fuel line right after the fuel pump and 
connected a hose to it and ran it back into the fuel tank that would 
be the same as having a bad accumulator. This would obviously cause 
fuel pressure to be low or the pump would have more difficulty 
maintaining pressure.

Are these assumptions correct or misguided?
