Re: Fuel Filtration for Yanmar 2qm15
Typical series fuel filtration for Yanmars: Tank --> 30然 Racor (if historically the 'downstream filter system' often fouls)--->10然 Racor---> 17然 (10-15然 is ok) engine mounted 'guard' filter ---> engine.
2然 is gross overkill, .... will need to be changed-out VERY frequently and/or will 'plug' easily if there is any excess contaminant, and will put an immense overload on the engine's lift pump.
