Re: Racor Dual Fuel Filter

Mohammad Shirloo

Hi Bernd;


We always use ours on an individual filter setting. We change out the used filter, when we service the engine and generator annually. We currently put about 200 hours on the engine annually, so once a year is sufficient.


When we change the used filter, we switch to the other unused filter, mark the dates of install and change on a blue tape on the filter housing. We generally do not have any issues during the year. The one time that we did have the engine stall, as entering a tight anchorage, a quick change of the filter selection level, fixed the problem.


So, we only change the filter selection lever, if we run into an issue.


Happy Sailing;
