I had my first experience this weekend in Islamorada with a dirty tank. After filling up in Boynton Beach (after my normal launch procedures) I lost
in Biscayne Bay and swapped out a filter foolishly thinking I had "fixed" the issue. As I was approaching the Marina I lost
with the same issue. After being disgracefully towed in, and reviewing my situation, I quickly came to the conclusion that my ride down knocked everything loose in my tank.
Cliff Berry Incorporated was more than accommodating in dispatching a truck to pump my tank on the 4th and I think we got nearly 99% of the fuel/liquid out. As you can imagine, it was a memorable holiday weekend with my GF and my baby.
Anywho, I'm willing to accept responsibility for not being 100% on top of my fuel maintenance
(wont happen again) but I run her often and get fuel
from a brand new marina (I know it does not mean anything at this point). I'm going to get the tank cleaned and I'm thinking about installing a fuel polishing system. Racor
has what appears to be a new system the P510MAM.
Does anyone have any experience with the P510MAM or a comparable system? I've read the thread on fuel polishing systems and as always there's great advice out there!
