Seriously - how can a tiny plastic impeller hurt your engine...

I had this thing in my hand before I fitted it and you could blow through it with out any resistance at all.

The extra resistance to the flow of fuel would be similar to the addition of a couple of meters of extra fuel pipe - or a pipe joiner. It would certainly be a lot less than the fuel filter or a single elbow joiner.

That isn't the point - I agree with you, but nevertheless Mercury for instance, actually mention in their manual that you shouldn't fit anything like that or even an inline filter, and manufacturers are strict about things like this when it comes to warranty claims.

This afternoon I received a second mail from Plastimo that says it's ok. Only concern: there should not be a return hose from the engine to the fuel tank.
I've discovered that the one from Evinrude is the same as the one from Navman.
So I'm ordering the Evinrude one, bit more money but no problems with the warranty.

How exactly will they find out??? If they are being that stupid I am sure the installation could go back to normal before anyone sees it!!!
