Question

how often and when should I drain the sight bowl? yes this is a question

Asked on 07/03/2015 by dick fellows

Top Answer

My installation is feeding a Honda 40. I switch out two 6 gallon tanks at least every 60 days so I have never seen any water collect (Yes, you can see water in the bottom of the site bowl if it is there. A flash light helps). If you have a fixed tank that is prone to collecting condensate, water in the bowl might mean that your fuel alcohol may have already coagulated its limit of water and is passing it down the line. In other words, the filter is probably doing its job also so it's time to drain the bowl but also the lines back to the tank, change the filter element and throw away the fuel.

Happy 4th of July! I usually drain the fuel separator every 25 hours.

Answer

Whenever it begins to look clear... more like water than gas.

Answered on 07/03/2015 by EDWARD JONES

Answer

The best answer is every time BEFORE you head out and every time AFTER you get back in. The gas with ethanol tends to have the water drop out when the boat sits for a while and when the temperature cools. When that happens, the first gas out of the tank will have a slug of water. After the boat runs the water gets redistributed, but the filter should still take it out. You only need to drain out about an ounce or two into a open top container. It should be clear and all gas. Let the container sit a few minutes and look for water, rust, etc. Drain more fuel out until it's clear. You should change the filter if the gas continues to show color or rust. That's from water standing inside the filter and forming rust on the filter walls. This system has saved me from lots of trouble with water that's in all gas, but worse in gas with 10% alcohol. Good luck. Al Ingram, Gloucester, VA

Answer

I change these filters each season. My boat sets through the winter and fuel can break down and algae growth can form in tanks lines and filters. So to be on the safe side I change them every year and carry a spare set on board. I also use a Racor RK11-1676E Vacuum Gauge to let me know of the filter status while they are in use.

Answer

Up here in the northeast i would recommend to change at least 2 time s during the boating season, my feeling is the humid weather we get and the E10 fuel and i also carrie an extra one on the boat.

Question

I have a Racor 320R-RAC-02 Fuel / Water seperatorassembly and need a replacement filter. In past I have used S3228UL but last order was filled with S3228TUL. Is this the replacement filter for this application or did I receive the incorrect filter? Application is for my in line fule assembly for the generator.

Asked on 01/30/2015 by Tom Schacht

Top Answer

It looks like the S3228UL was replaced with the S3228TUL. That should be the correct filter.

Unfortunately, my filter is a RACOR 320R-RAC-01 assembly. I use the S3227 filter. For my outboard it works well. Jim
