Re: Clogged fuel filter?

Alex, I think the 2 micron is definitely too fine. That's probably as fine as or finer than your secondary. I believe I'm using the 30 now. I used a 2 micron for one season because that was all that was on the shelf and I wanted to get it done, but I always wondered if that might have been what pushed my fuel pump over the edge that year.
