  • Fuel filters

    How much filtration do you need?
    I've read that some filters go down to 5 microns and some up to 100 microns?
    I put one filter in-line before the regulator that says it flows 130 gph and filters down to 40 microns?
    Is that good enough or do I need to trap more microns

    I can't fit a filter before the fuel pump how important is that?

    I've got an older Edelbrock AN filter before the carb, and a factory canister type (new one from my old '92 Ranger I think) before the fuel pump & it seems to work OK...So far.

      I took my zoned out POS off my car, don't know if it's bad to not have it, but it seems to be running OK.

        Scoop,
        I put one fuel filter in front of the fuel pump to protect the fuel pump from big chunks and one in front of the carb. I think you recommend that to me now that I think of it. So, 100 mircon before the pump, and 10 before the carb. In the refinery we try to filter down to 10 mircon. I have no idea what is good for the car. The smaller the better but you'll have to change more frequently.
