Default In line fuel filter?

Anybody using one of these on their built motor? I was thinking about ordering one to tie into my stainless fuel lines.

Browse around, I use a total of 2 filters in mine. Ideally you should run two. 1 coarse ~100 micron pre pump, and one fine after the pump.

intank setup will have the sock and then the filter in the engine bay, you can use an inline filter but you want to make sure it will work with higher PSI, I believe the one pictured is for a carb motor and not an EFI motor, you need to make sure it's NOT a carb filter as you will blow the filtering element apart.

if your intake but have braided lines then the fine filter after is good, if your running an external pump like an A1000, then the coarse --> pump ---> fine ---> motor is what you want.

From Jegs

"Easy to disassemble for cleaning, this in-line fuel filter has a 35 micron, sintered bronze element. It's anodized blue and flows up to 5 gpm. Available in -6 or -8AN for use with Earl's high-performance fuel line. Replacement element sold separately"

So maybe it would not be good since it is only a 35 micron filter? I thought I saw HomemadeWRX use this on his build but I could be wrong. I have one walbro 255lph which of coarse has the pre-pump filter already attached.

I think he may have made a typo in his post.

From Jegs:

Aeromotive In-Line Fuel Filter With Shut-Off Valve


Ever Take A Fuel Bath When Changing Your Filter? Aeromotive Has a Solution

Cleaning and replacing your filter element used to mean draining your gas tank. The new Aeromotive Shutoff Valve Fuel Filter allows you to shut off fuel flow and replace your filter element with little or no fuel loss. Featuring 100-micron stainless steel elements and are recommended for use between the fuel cell or sumped tank and the fuel pump inlet.

Edit: This is for a fuel cell which acts as a pre-pump filter for the aeromotive A1000 pump. I don't think this is applicable for my setup since my pump is in tank.

Well, in that case treat your sock filter as the pre filer and get a nice small media filter for after the pump. Just make sure the element are is high enough that it doesn't cause restriction.

The Earl's filter flows up to 5gpm which seems like plenty since my fuel pump can only deliver 255lph.

1L = 0.264 gal

Walbro Pump(255*0.264)= 67.32 gallons per hour

Earls filter (5gpm*60m/h)= 300 gallons per hour

Flow doesn't seem to be an issue here. The element for the Earl's filter is 35 microns. Is this fine enough for my application?

BTW, nice looking setup you have there Martins. Very impressive. Hows it comming along?

I use the CM 1 micron and love it, its easy to service. The elements are cheap too, and its VERY easy to mount. I got it from www.pegasusautoracing.com

If I were you I would go with a finer filtration media. Particles of >35 microns can still clog an injector.

flow seems good but at what PSI, if thats rated at 15psi for a mech or elec carb pump, your still screwed, it's the PSI rating as well as flow that you need to worry about not just flow.

Thanks again for the input guys! This is great info!
Scby rex: Is this the filter you have?



Element is good to one micron

From the website:


C/M 4 inch Machined Aluminum Fuel Filter Assembly

Canton/Mecca offer a fuel filter using their proven high-strength aluminum housing and synthetic filter media from their oil filters! The seals and the filter element are made using materials that are resistant to all common racing fuels. The super-fine 1 micron filter element will flow up to 90 G.P.M. with minimal pressure drop. In fact, the pressure drop is so low that this extra fine, high-capacity filter can even be used on the suction side of most pumps.

Includes one T-bolt mounting bracket, which is adequate for most installations. For extreme vibration environments or for maximum reliability, a second clamp (part #1285-Square) can be used to help support the filter. Bottom inlet and side outlet are both -12 O-ring ports and require an O-Ring Boss Adapter Kit (Part No. 1280-Size), sold separately. Includes one filter element

This seems like the one to get. It can flow 90 gpm with almost no pressure drop

Probably between this one and the Aeromotive one linked above by Drakar

The fittings kit is another $25. The replacement elements are pretty cheap though.

Mick do you use the 1 micron or the 8 micron high flow element?

From my refresh rebuild thread - 8 micron

Just in case anyone wanted to order from them.



Here you can see the size of the high flow filter. The old one was very clean and I have not done the 10,000 miles that they say is needed before a change (just 6000 miles) but while I was doing fuel stuff I thought it was a worth while change



Changed the fittings on it at the same time, this will make it easier to get the fuel lines on and off
