Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] ? 2-micron Racor fuel filters?
Just had this week a Sydney VOLVO mechanic on board to install the new engine.
I also had 1 “2 micron” filter on board while all the others were 10 micron; he used that “2 micron” filter and told me that since my diesel was very clean it was no problem and I might as well use that filter now.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] ? 2-micron Racor fuel filters?
I recently changes Racor fuel filter, which usually are 10-micron. Amel does recommend for the Racor Filter to use 10-micron as well.
I found spare parts from former owner; - same but 2-micron filters for Racor.
Does anyone ever used 2-micron (or 5-micron) instead of the 10-micron?
If yes, how it worked?
I can imagine that the 2-micron filters are too narrow and fuel flow will be affected.
