Water separating fuel filter suggestions

3 posts in this topic

I plan on putting a water separating fuel filter on my boat this year. What brands are you happy with? With the research I've done, I like the Racor with the see-through bowl and drain.

I've been using Racor for years on diesel boats, they do the job, elements are readily available. Depending on your intended use, the clear bowl for gasoline is not USCG approved, that means no commercial use ie. guiding etc. Just be sure you mount it in an area that you can get a coffee can or similar under it to catch the fuel when changing the element so you won't have gas all over the place. Shop around for replacement elements, they can be spendy.

If I didn't get one with the clear bowl do you empty it a few times a season and replace the filter once a year?

      FYI 2 of the 3 landings near us were starting to look a little beat up yesterday. With the temps & moisture today along with more of same forcasted for tomorrow, I have to believe that access to the area lakes will be getting tougher.

      Still about 14-15 inches of ice...plenty of slop and water today. Access was very beat up when I left.

      Anyone know what resorts are/aren't open to wheelhouse traffic this weekend? I see Hunters point and Agate bay are closed due to cracks by shore. I usually fish the east shore but might have to be open to something else.... Anyone know what resorts are/aren't open to wheelhouse traffic this weekend?

      I took a break from walleye fishing on Vermilion and decided to chase crappies for a few days to get away from the crowds. Fun and a good bite also! Cliff
