That's what I figured also on the switch option. The so far as I can see no adjustment in the config.

It's only $10 for MT, $11 for AT, plus shipping.

The new, 3-way kit will be more, probably about $25 plus shipping.
It's a MUCH more expensive, and much more rugged, switch.

On the D-jet systems, that timing is the same for initial turn-on and
for turn-off if the engine stalls. That's a safety feature, in case a
fuel line is broken in an accident. It limits the amount of gas that
will be pumped out before the pump is turned off. If you can adjust
those 2 times independently with the Megasquirt then it would be fine
to change just the turn-on delay, but you don't want to extend the
turn-off delay.

A primer switch is probably a better solution. All my cars have them.
