Re: fuel?

I believe the consensus is that it's a lossy system, not using RP-1, but it is not yet known whether it vents overboard, or to a low pressure catch tank.

It's not transferred back to the fuel tank as that is on the other side of the LOX tank and the pipework would be too heavy and awkward.
