Re: [DML] removing fuel system pressure

A common way to de-pressurize the fuel system is to pull the fuel pump fuse while the engine is running.  I don't know which fuse it is off the top of my head, but that's easy to find out.

I recently acquired the big M5 bolts for the fuel distributor -- and 
while I've got it off, I'll be replacing the little O-ring underneath 
it. What's the best way of de-pressurizing the fuel system? I want to 
make sure I don't spray gasoline all over myself.

I have seen several answers to this question in the DML archives, but it 
seems to be the best way would be to trip the inertia switch while the 
car is running. If that does its job properly, it de-pressurizes the 
system and shuts off the car, right?
