pdqaltair, Thanks for your comments and response. To be clear, I am not discussing E-15, as it is still under scrutiny for Marine Use, both Gas and deisel. I am not referring to existing problems, crimped line, deteroriated gaskets, etc. as I currently have no current problems with the fuel delivery on my boat.
What I am asking about are the advertised filters/dehydrators being offered. They do put a compelling argument for the need for them out there. As I stated in my original post, they are filled with dessicant that when activated turns pink in color. When I was in the military I was charged with the same type of dehydrators (in theory), they were filled with cat litter type desicant and the blue/pink crystals were for indication of reaching their servicability, and were removed and heated air passed over the desicant till it returned to blue color. This was a protectant for avionics equipment. My question was simply "Has anyone tried this." "If so, your opinions, worth it or not etc."
I am a fairly new boat owner, And am looking forward to positive feed back.
I see a lot of advertising for fuel scrubbing, tank polishing, water seperators clogging. If this simple filter/dehydrator works, then I will try to install one in my boat. I would just like to know if anyone has had experience with them.
