LP stove location and venting options

Hi all, thanks in advance for your input. I'm about to add a Vermont Castings direct vent LP stove to a room in a corner location, and I'd like to vent it through an existing opening in the wall which is not immediately above that corner location. Referring to the attached image, the stove will go in Location D and I'd like to vent at Location F using a couple of elbows. This particular setup is not indicated as an option in this particular diagram (which comes out of the owners manual for the stove)... My question to you is: does my intended venting setup pose some issue, or is it OK?

Direct vent gas fireplaces are carefully engineered to work correctly. Install them outside the manufacturers directions and you can easily be in trouble ---either operating unreliably or even unsafely.

I would NOT modify the manufacturers installation instructions.

Make a new hole and plug the old one.
