Re: Diesel/Water Fuel Filter System
Thanks for everybodys comments. I have installed a Racor 900FH with 12 volt heater. I wanted something that was of recognised quality, could handle a large volume, easy to source replacement filters and allows an easy visual inspection.
A filter between the keel tank and header tank will mean that most contaminants are removed early. There are now 3 filters in place before the diesel enters the Yanmar Engine. The reason for this overkill is the lack of clean diesel available once I travel to other countries.The other issue is moisture as fuel tanks sweat particularly while storing fuel for long periods of time.
