I figure by the time that becomes an issue the fuel line itself will probably be due to be changed anyways.

Specs are from FleetGuard and Baldwin.

Pretty much 6 of 1 half dozen of others on choices.



Click on Link below Read #28 & #31 for a much better way and less loss of fuel changing LP filters.

IMO in some cases “Made in Mexico” is better than “Made in China”.

I'll have to recheck the micron ratings on them for FASS pumps but I remember them being about the same rating as the Baldwins I ran. Gotta research the screen thing though.

First time doing that, new lines.
There not the typical rubber fuel lines.
With the front up at least 6” and around 1/4 tank with the fuel cap loose the fuel would have a pretty hard time syphoning up hill even with a sump.

I don’t have a problem with the AD FleetGuard WS, just remember the FleetGuard fuel filter is a 5 micron vs 10 micron Baldwin.
Then having the Racor/3018 stock fuel filter being 4 micron.
I have enough FleetGuards for 3 more changes and one more change with Baldwin’s.
Always buying in multiples for a better price.
Baldwin WS being half filter half screen 20 micron.

Baldwin WS being half filter half screen 20 micron.
After more research, I found that the FG WS I used filters 90% at 20 microns, and the FF being 97% at 5 microns, so not too bad either way. And yes I'm like you, I bought in bulk for cheaper prices and free shipping. Maybe I'll mix them up next time and use the FG FF with the Baldwin WS.

I have a tertiary filter up front (with higher filtration specs than the 1st two) for backup. I always open the FWS drain valve to start, for water inspection.
And, fuel in the secondary filter has already ran thru the primary FWS, catching any of the big stuff.
