My pentagon shaped fuel pump does that and even after a rebuild using the 'Polaris' rebuild kit, it still allows fuel to flow backwards the other way, (which I feel should not be the case with the 1-way valves) although after the rebuild the petrol does not flow backwards in a stream, but as a slow trickle.
yes petrol will pass through even with engine off..i just got intohabit of turning fuel tap off when i stop
