I wish I had room to do this mod with some Racor 500's....but I've seen this done and if you're an ocean cruiser or live in an area that has questionable fuel sources, its a great idea. Some have even dedicated fuel pumps that can turn the rig into a fuel polishing system that runs when the boat is under wind power during lumpy seas (otherwise you dont get the gunk to filter).

Personally, for the kind of sailing I do, its a bit overkill as I filter my diesel before putting it in the tank and I'm vigilant about treating the tank with biocide. Although, I imagine in a few years as my tank grows more stuff, I'll invest in this mod.
