Re: Replace Diesel Fuel Regularly - - What about a fuel purification system?


Thanks for the feedback. RCI states they remove small amounts of stuff. I don't remember the exact size of the sediment but it was about the same as my racor filters. They sell these devices for commercial marine, rec boating among other applications. They have a few different sizes. I saw the small (the size for our 75hp engine) device in action and it is quite impressive. I guess the real test is to install and see if there is any sediment in my racors after running a tank or more of fuel through it. We cleaned our tanks before re-powering so we don't have much stuff in our fuel other than maybe a bit water.

I think the magnets are a little strange. The person I spoke with at RCI did not mention magnets.
