Yeah but I was comparing the 65 as opposed to the 10 one in the first post of this thread

I also use one of these (along with my water seperator)

http://www.mrfunnel.com/

to filter the fuel as I'm filling up the tank from jerry can or plastic 5l can. It's surprising how much water appears! Can get them from most chandlers.

May be overkill but then again, prevention is better than getting stuck!

I was looking at one of those - does it slow down the filling rate much?

It does slow it down a bit (like any funnel). The flow rates are on the website under "models" section although I suspect these are U.S. gallons (4 litres).

I'm guessing it takes approx 1-2 mins to drain a 20l jerry can into it but my filler means the funnel is at an angle so doesn't get optimum flow.
