 I put one of these things in my rig when they first went to ethanol, and have yet to see a drop of water in the filter. I'm thinking about removing it to make room for the pumps that will be needed when I install twin power poles. Anyone actually seen any water in the filters?

 If you use ethanol blended gas you should never have water in your gas unless you get it from some place that has a real bad leak in their storage tank because the ethanol mixes with the water from condensation and your motor burns it. If the gas sits too long with out being treated you can get phase seperation which will screwup everything and the ethanol eats rubber parts and gas lines in older motors but normal water shouldn't be a problem. If the motor you have is a mercury they don't want you to put a second filter in the system because it can restict fuel flow and burn up your motor.

 It seems that all the talk about having to get a fuel water separator was a lot of hype.

 The filter does more than separate water from the fuel. I have mine changed so I have never looked and all of the fuel I burn is recreational fuel so I don't deal with ethanol.


I did have water in my tank bad enough that the water indicator in the filter on the OB went off. That means the in-line filters had to be saturated.

  Just run ethanol treatment in your blended gas. If the corn crop gets any worse they might stop making ethanol anyway. Change your regular filter every year or 100 hrs.
