Re: Replacing both Fuel filters - Yanmar 1GM10
Correct me if I am wrong here. One could put a 5x bigger filter in the 2um filter vs the 10um. Have the 2um be a 2 micron, and the 10um being say a 10 micron could they not?
As I recall, my 2gm is a 2micron, altho it may be the 2um at the engine, I've gone with a 10m racor before it. This seems to get most of the mess when the time comes.....I[ve been told not to use a smaller micron secondary vs the primary later in the line, so I have not done so. The racor is good to 8 or 15 gpm. If I do more than 1gpm I am at FULL throttle. Usually about .5-.9 gpm for most useage. I can not imagine a 1gm being any higher use gpm wise.
