Which Water Fuel Separator, they've confused me.....

.....because I thought it was easy to simply pick one from the shelf, then the guy said, whats your flow rate per hour ? Shit, I dunno, I just turn the key and go, so here I am back to "old faithful" for your advise.

I'm running a 2007 Mercury 115 4 cylinder 4 stroke which has been picking up water from the fuel tank after the winter, I ran the fuel pump in to a bucket and took out at least 250ml of water however, when running the engine later that day I found her splutteing somewhat and figured some water must remain therefore I wish to fit an inline water fuel separator.

I'd prefer ne with a clear bowl below the filter as opposed to a cartrige filter only type and found one on Force 4 for 50 but when calling the seller he threw a spanner in the works and asked about flow rate.

Could you advise your thoughts please, should flow rate worry me for such a small engine ?

Any direction to what you run with would be appreciated, thanks in advance, MeMe.

That engine won't take anymore than 40 lph, go for a Racor 10 micron with a clear bowl. Filters are about 10 each & the whole thing will set you back around 60.

The racor 500 series uses element filters at about 4 quid in 2 10 or 30 micron as opposed to the spin on ones at around 20 quid worth the extra on the initial purchase IMHO you can also change the filter without spilling any fuel at the element comes out the top

Ah, I was talking to a couple of blokes on a stand at the boat show. They had a firm in Wakefield & seemed switched on & useful. They are down Calder way somewhere. They were doing a Racor clear bowl filter assembly that was all plastic including the head. The whole thing is disposable & not over dear. It would be ideal for anyone who has their filter on the transom.


This is it
