Beta engines

A few years back I repowered with a Beta. At the time I was going to be very conservative and began to use 2 micron filters in my prefilter. After going thru 4 filters during a short trip up the Washington coast and ending up at midnight with no engine (clogged filter) and heavy seas, I asked Beta what they recommended. They use a 10 micron filter on their engine and recommend either a 10 or 30 micron prefilter. I now use a 10 AND prefilter the fuel in my tank with a fuel conditioner before any significant trips. The fuel conditioner is one I built using a top fuel dragster fuel pump (plenty of flow rate) and HUGE inline filter.
