Re: Racor fuel vacuum guages

I would not want a Racor filter without a suction gauge. Without the gauge, you only have the equivalent of a dummy light...and that being, the engine dying of fuel starvation. Seeing that gauge needle move and hold steady in a counter clockwise direction is a very good indication of what is happening inside of the filter so it can be dealt with before the starvation happens.
