Yanmar gold lined fuel filter

I needed one recently - RRP is 144! OK, maybe there's no gold lining - so I'm looking for a Silver Lining!

The filter (a spin on) is Yanmar part# 119798-55110 and it's made by DENSO, with a Denso part# 186100-6490

The filter is the same fit as a V8 Landcruiser block. I can get a Landcruiser filter that physically fits. I suppose I have two questions:

1. What micron filtration is likely to be provided by a generic/Toyota engine fuel filter? The bl@@dy Yanmar is 2 micron!

2. Do we know of a cheaper source of the (Denso) originals?

I have a photo somewhere - for what it's worth....

I've used Toyota landcruiser filters for years with no ill effects .
The filter is there to protect the pump from contaminates doesn't matter if it's on a car or a boat
Presumably you have a racor or similar pre filter which will catch most crud anyway leaving the engine filter purely as a final clean up filter

Racor running 10 micron cartridges. I read something about protecting injectors from high pressure water and particles. I'm not completely sold on this 2 micron filter speil - I wonder is it a way to sell 144 filters every 250 hours

If it's good enough for Toyota it will be fine IMO if you have a good pre fuel filter/separator water drops out, as long as it's the correct size for fuel flow I would have thought.144 sounds a pee take to me

Most motor factors will be able to order Denso filters - I use Dingbro in Scotland

At 2 microns, you must get petrol out of the other end and bitumen left in the tank.

Thanks Andy - thing is, when my local lads run the Denso numbers, they draw a blank. I think Denso have supped with the devil and run off a private batch for Yanmar. I'll try your lads but the interwebs are full of men with the same quest as myself....

You certainly get a nice slick of asphaltenes on the filter...
