Too many variables to change fuel filters on a set schedule, imo.
Its able to do its job or not. 1000 hrs or 10 hrs....

Regarding that yanmar filter thingie, i would 1st talk to the engine dealer

Im fairly religous about keeping my small tank and 4 jugs topped up.
I do not add any biocide or treatments to the tanks.
The last place i want any trash going...is to the bottom of the tank.
Filter now in use is almost 2 years in....est around 475 hrs. Engine hrs = oil changes
Bowl is clear with a few specs of whatever fuel trash was put into the fuel jugs.

Its the racor filter hardware thats super $s.
Generic replacement filters are inexpensive.
The 500 is very user friendly....and proven.

Im sure there are others that perform as well and are much less $s.
Post a link to the one you like

Jug tied to stanchion or line, syphon into tank with length of tubing, rag around tubing at fuel fill to prevent water ingress.
Syphoning is not fast but is easy and safe.
