I was told
well, you know, :rolleyes: everyone is an authority on everything!

That a 10 micron primary filter for diesel is just right.

Racor has filters that go to way less. What do most of "yall" use for your under 50 hp engines? (just a random guess on hp)

Now that I'm going to have a new tank I'm wondering if I can get less smudge on transom by going to less microns then 10.

Also, can I keep the new tank sludge free by always using biocides?

Ok.. I've a racor 220 that uses a 24t element (10m) should I get a 120 and install that after it? EVERYone has 2m filters right? sounds like something worth doing?
ps: never had a probl with 10m filter.

Wow... turns out there is a 2m element for my #220 series filter. so now i'm torn on which to get the. R24T is 10m and R24S is 2m. The small spin on for the engine is only 10m. New tank is in and the engine is running again on clean fresh fuel!

haven't changed filters yet but my engine is most definitely running smoother! I"m guessing it has better fuel pressure since the pick strainer on the old tank was so badly gunked up.
