Hi the one Evinrude recommend is the Raccor , however you can get this one from Force 4 which is the same rating (10 micron) and looks very similar for a lot less.

Moeller Clear Site Water Separating Fuel Filter - Only 59.95 - Force 4 Chandlery

Fit the same as the other one. A lot easier to maintain with the same spares

I'd agree with that but for a different reason

OP Here you go try fitting this

I use one of these simple spin on filters. Less gaskets to leak and no plastic that can get broken in our tiny boat. I have no need to see if there is water in my fuel though since my boat is stored on the trailer with a full tank of fuel and gets used often enough to cycle the fuel. Otherwise the Racors are well known thru the industry. Just make sure to protect the plastic parts. Fuel leaks on a boat are really bad.

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.

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 !
