Re: DIY Fuel Polishing?

Mr. Funnel Fuel Filter. Depending on the layout of your fill tube, the hard part can be getting a tube to the bottom of the tank.
I installed a diverter valve ahead of my primary fuel filter and use a 12 volt pump to empty the tank into jerry cans. Kind of a down and dirty way to do it but it works. You can filter the fuel twice by filtering through the funnel into the jerry cans and then filter again from the jerry cans back to the fuel fill tube. My next project is to put a second diverter valve in the fuel return line and put a dedicated polishing filter between the two lines so that fuel can be polished while sailing in choppy conditions while the engine is not running.
