Anybody recommend a fuel filter that can flow with gravity?

Looking at installing a slip tank in the bed of my truck and piping it into the main tank but would like to install a fue filter between the two tanks. Anybody recommend an inline filter or spin on filter assembly that would still flow with only a gravity feed?

Re: Anybody recommend a fuel filter that can flow with gravity?

I run one with a 3/8" ID line and clear plastic canister inline filter and it works well. Plumbed into the front elbow on my OBS front tank. Think it's a G32 gas inline disposable filter and it works well in filtering out water and other keerap.

They all will, obviously the tighter the filter, the slow it will drain. Are you looking for high level filtration or just a rock catcher. If your going for the later something like the Wix 33033 works fine.

Doesn't need to be a high level of filtration as their is 2 more downstream of the main tank. But just something to keep any material that might be left from the construction of the tank or that settles out during normal use.

Then anything that cross references to that wix should do the trick.

Yeah I looked up those Wix filters, forgot about those. The boat actually uses that 33033 for the fuel filter. No reason not to use them with diesel fuel? Tried 'googling' that G32 inline filter but nothing really came up

Sorry Dieslnevan2009, that would be Fram G3 inline gas line filter. Works well on my system, simple, easy to install, monitor and it does a good job of filtering.

Ahhh... now I found it on google. Thanks JCART, I like that you can see through that one!

I tried steal FMCo version at one time but like the see through as it will catch water which you can readily see in there. They are inexpensive and I usually pack a spare. I've found that my system does not overflow out the filler (stock) tank neck and only on very rare occasion when both stock front and auxilliary are totally full on hot summer day front end down just slightly it will leak just a bit out the front tank vent.
I really like this mod and provides significant range as I now can pack 405 litres total or 105 US gallons.
