According to Tony Athens (see boatdiesel.com) modern spin on filters hold many times more crud than the Racor.
And the spin on filters are much easier to change that the Racor.. In which you put in the paper element, then fill (but not overfill, almost impossible since the paper filter takes up all the room) put on the lid with gasket
, hold down the lid while you tighten the handle.. What a mess!
It stands to reason that decades of research
and development on fuel filtration have resulted in some level of improvement.
So, what is it? 50 year old filter technology, or modern?
Anyone want to replace their GPS
with an ADF?
Why can't things remain where i carelessly left them?
