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?

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
