What is the fuel flow gph/lps, whatever, with this device? There are few places that enjoy seeing you sit there for 2 hours dripping fuel into your fuel holding tank
. I have 3 of the black ones with single
and double filters (and they really do stop junk and water--they clog up and need to be cleaned sometimes after 20 gallons depending on where you get your fuel--e.g. Port Dickson Marina, Malacca Straits) but usually end up hosing right into the inspection
caps on the fuel tank
. I use them sometimes for filtering fuel from jerry cans into main tank. Not ideal, I know, but tides going out, pump jockey going home, other boats waiting.
They are good ideas, these filters but not a must for round the world
cruising. Clean your fuel tank
when you can and rely on primary and secondary filters otherwise. You may think me reckless but I think I'm practical.
