Looking at the picture is it just a solids/fuel filter or a combined filter & water separator ?

Could be either. The Yamaha OEM fuel/water separator combines a 10 micron filter and water separator in an all-steel spin-on can.

If you are feeling clever why not drill n tap the bottom of the canister and put a little drain valve on it?
Probably cheaper in the long run to swap for a CAV type, though I found a separ at a 2nd hand boat bits place and rebuilt it, for 1/3rd of the price of a new unit and you can clean the filters.

Fuel useage

We are having great problems with fuel filters because of the way we use our boat. We use it every 6 weeks or so and store with a cover on he trailer in between. If we leave the fuel tank full, we get stale fuel and poor starting, if we leave it empth we get condensation, flood the fuel filter and again poor starting.

Any suggestions other than to use the boat more (we'd love to - time doesn't permit.)

We have a cannister filter like a car oil filter & are thinking of changing it to a Racor with clear bowl & bleed.

Also does anyone have any experience of using fuel conditioner/stabiliser to stop it going off?

Thanks for your help

I have a clear bowl and bleed filter/separator and it's a good thing. Also have fuel in the tank for fairly long periods. Tried Soltron? end of last season and there's half a tank of fuel left over from then. Sniffed it the other day and it still smells 'sweet'. I'll be getting ready early April so I'll see how it goes then.

You guys don't have anything like this over there?

http://www.goldeagle.com/sta-bil/index.htm

Supposedly stops fuel from deteriorating for up to a year (don't know; never used it myself, until just recently, when I got my new chainsaw.)

A lot of people on this side swear by it.

Yeah we do but it's not widely advertised. You can buy it for lawnmower engines quite cheaply

Apparently these filters absorb the water into whatever material they are made of (according to the marine engineer I spoke to previously). I guess if there is a load of water it'll start to build up in the base of the filter but there may be some wadding or something to soak this up.

Anyone got a picture of one of these in bits? I wasn't very keen to take a saw to a filter full of fuel vapour! One spark and bye bye hand......
