The big Racor's are overkill for me. The MARINE 025-RAC-02 handles all my needs at 10micron, 35gph, compact and with a clear bowl.

MARINE IN-LINE GASOLINE SERIES - Parker

Go with the racor Andy, you know you want to. The clear bowl is very handy. & once you've bought the kit, the filter elements are about a tenner. Biffer, the under cowl filter on the Etecs is a proper water separating filter with "water in fuel" probes linked to the EMM. It's not one of the poxy lawn mower types.

Same on my 60hp Yam. But its fairly small. Having a belt and suspenders is a better bet

In France, a lot of owners are complaining about destroyed injectors ...

If I had an Etec - or any other new, modern and expensive engine - I would invest in a Racor-Parker diesel filter, turbine series - for instance the 500FGSS-2 - which removes up- or down ? - to 2 microns, and accepts 60gph.
It cleans 5 times better because it centrifuges the fuel.

Twice the price of a 320 RAC, but much cheaper than a single injector to replace !
