Cleaning / Polishing Diesel Fuel

good day all
Somebody somewhere posted an ingenious self made system for cleanig and polishing diesel fuel before storing in gerricans
the system involves a pump some filters and valves
I wonder if the Mod can direct me to find it or if any one has a clear diagram/ picture to guide me
thanks
Georges

There are several versions, this site has lots of information and a schematic of one (Cap't Will's) design.

Parker has a pre-made one. It's on sale now for $587US. That might be cheaper than you could build one, unless you happened to have some Racor or Gulf Coast filter units laying around.

Hi Ram,

It's basically a miniature version of the Nordhavn setup without the day tank and for just one engine and one genset. It works great, cheap if you built it yourself, easy to build and easy to operate. There's many miniature valves but the labels make it easy with the job in mind.

A good improvement would be that 12V programmable timer MarkJ came up with in another thread. I use a mechanical timer instead.

cheers,
Nick.
