Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] ? 2-micron Racor fuel filters?

Hi Teun
I'm writhing OFF THE GROUP.

What happens with your D3-110? It was not an old Engine; I guess 2009.
Are you installing a brand new Volvo? Same model?
Excuse if I'm too curious.

Best regards

Hi Ruedi,


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.


Best Regards Teun

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] ? 2-micron Racor fuel filters?



Hi all


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. 


Best regards
