TWhat is the probability that maybe your test methods were not 100% accurate between each filter ?
It is 100% probable that there were inconsistencies in my testing due to a number of factors.
What doesnt change is the observed flowrates between the filters at the same funnel height / head pressure and that the Delco caught 100% of the water in the center filter sump, and the Racor did not.
This is the AC Delco filter drain basin. 100% of the water was caught in drainable filter sump
This was the Racor. Half in the drainable part of the filter. Half was caught between the outer element and the can. It was only drainable by inverting the filter and having the fuel go back through the inlet slots.
The company I work for has used Wix filters for years on everything, pickups, big trucks, heavy equipment, the tractor we mow the lawn with, compressor engines, pipe benders, our 3,000 gallon bulk fuel tanks, air, fuel, engine oil, hydraulic oil....you get my point. Never had an issue with them. Not trying to start an argument, just stating my experience

Did you turn the red Baldwin over and have water come out of the top also or did the drain let it all out. I have some white 46062 filters that are still the 2 stage. Did you have a 46062 in 2 stage to test also?

I’m kidding, but Wix is a dirty word around here for some reason
I don't think Wix is a dirty word at all. The test results are what they are, good or bad. If wix works for you, then good for you. The tests are showing that there may be better filters out there if you choose to use them, or not. I use wix on several pieces of equipment but have chosen other, I believe better, filters for my truck and car.
