Diesel Fuel Filtering & Polishing Systems

New boat with Yanmar 200 hp diesel engine. Cruising the world in various out of the way places. Iíve decided to add a fuel filtering/polishing system. Any recommendations on which one to purchase or other suggestions? Also going to be taking diesel engine maintenance courses.

Mike

Check this out, it's expensive but you can carry 100 filters with minimal space and filters are only $1.00 apiece. I own the complete Ocean Marine filtering system. Chuck

Mike - All those that I've talked to think that these RCI Technologies do an excellent job - no filter cartridges/inserts required. I have one (installing today). Don't know where you live, but if you are in the US ... might be something worthwhile.
