      After I get my system up and reliably running, I will change one of the ball valves (I have 2) under the hood with one of these.

      Solenoid Operated Valve



      I'll control it with a switch near the dash with electric only available when the van is running so that it won't suck juice when I'm parked.

      That valve looks interesting except that the specs indicate it is not designed to stay open for more than eight hours (overheats) and it consumes 20 watts whenever it is open. On the same Amazon page they had motorized ball valves that only take power when changing position. Their weak spot is that they are designed for fluids up to 190F. A higher temp version would seem to be ideal then use a micro-controller with a thermocouple sensor at the HWH.
