Racor Snapp fuel filter/water separator

Has anyone had experience with Racor's Snapp disposable filter? Seems pretty convenient and compact.

engines, no?

I got a reply from Javier at Racor customer service who says it's diesel and gas. Might need more confirmation.

Re: Racor Snapp fuel filter/water separator

Parker/Racor says the Snapp Filter is for all engines up to 140 hp - E10 Gasoline, Diesel, Bio-Diesel - Outboard Use Only.

ABYC standards for inboard fuel filter installations for gasoline or diesel engines require that filters installed within the engine space must be able to pass a two and one-half minute heat test as defined by ANSI/UL 1105. Unfortunately, Gasoline and diesel filters that meet this requirement are generally equipped with a metal bowl. Filters with plastic sight bowls must be equipped with a metal heat shield to pass the test.

Accordingly, I don’t think the “SNAPP” Filtre, with it’s plastic bowl (& body), will be suitable for use on Inboard Engines.
