Much appreciated Ian
I will take your advice on that.think I recently saw an article where the one sold my West Marine came out better than the Baja.That is possibly the one you are referring to.

I suggest that instead of a Baja filter you look out for one of the newer ( 8 years old) filters that consist of a black plastic , flat bottomed funnel with a vertical filter tube in the centre. We used one in South America to great effect.
I have seen comparison tests with the Baja and the Baja came a poor second, as well as needing a lot of cleaning each time you use it.
I don't have the name of the black filter but it is widely available in chandlers ( I think it is made in Canada)
I have demonstrated it to friends by filling it with water--not a drop goes through the filter. It certainly saved us on several occasions--once, 15% of the "diesel" we bought was water and crud.

Thanks Mark. Does that mean that you plumbed / welded a 2nd return entrance pipe back into the fuel tank, ie. separate from the one that pushes the engine and generator excess fuel back into the tank?
