I use the Racor 120 also with my 2gm20f on my Jeanneau. I personally can not see using a bigger filter! As others have said, I think there is another issue, ie junk in the tank, bad fuel that last fill up etc. Those are the usual reasons for clogging fuel filters with diesels, be it in my pickup, dumptruck, trackhoe, bobcat or sailboat!

Sounds like the issue I had with my boat. Got some bad fuel, went thru a few filters, but the stock one was a PITA, so I installed the 120R, and that was bigger than what WAS in my boat! At least this one is a spin on, vs a bolt thru the lower pan, and some sort of paper/metal thing. I ended up with that one having to remove the 'WHOLE" filter from the fuel lines so I did not end up with diesel all over the place!

If it were me, I'd keep adding the algaecide, and clean the tank, keep current Racor filter. Like all things great and small, that is me! not you.
