What is the purpose of the secondary fuel filter?
The secondary diesel fuel filter is the second filtration device that your boat’s fuel will pass through. This equipment is usually installed after the primary fuel filter and near the engine, where its main purpose is to catch any contaminants that the first filter may have missed.
What is the difference between primary and secondary fuel filters?
In general primary filters are used to separate water and larger particles (10-50 micron efficiency) while secondary filters are for final filtration (2-10 micron efficiency). These differences mainly have to do with the water separation requirements placed on primary fuel filters.
What are the signs that your fuel filter is bad?
Signs Of A Clogged Fuel Filter

A backward fuel filter may restrict fuel to the engine, but the restriction is made up by the fuel pump. This will result in increased wear to the fuel pump and may cause pump failure.
Can you drive with a clogged fuel filter?
Stalling – A vehicle with a dirty or blocked fuel filter is one of the main reasons in what causes an engine to stall while driving. A blocked fuel filter prevents fuel from traveling through the fuel lines to the engine, starving your engine of fuel. If your engine is not getting fuel, it simply will not run.

|Liquid fuels||petroleum||diesel, gasoline, kerosene, LPG, coal tar, naphtha, ethanol|
|Gaseous fuels||natural gas||hydrogen, propane, methane, coal gas, water gas, blast furnace gas, coke oven gas, CNG|
What is the function of primary and secondary type fuel filter?
A primary fuel filter must remove particles in the range of 10 to 15 microns (0.0004″ to 0.0006″). A secondary or final fuel filter must remove particles ranging from 3 to 5 microns (0.00008″ to 0.0001″).
How do I prime my fuel manager filter?
Loosen the thumb screw on the front of the Fuel Manager and pump the primer until fuel comes out. Retighten the thumb screw and prime until the primer is firm.
