Re: Racor fuel vacuum guages

I like the alternate fuel polishing idea. However, the normal fuel pickup is above the bottom of the tank, so it would not likely ingest much of the settled contaminants. I think this is why it's positioned there and often only grabs sediment, when the tank is sloshed at sea. Do you find you do?

If I'm right, a couple more bits, for an alternate pickup, might do the trick.
