Rust in the tanks


Recommended Posts

I've replaced a the fuel filter a couple of times recently just to see if there is any rust coming from the tanks. There was definitely a little rust caught up in the filters and I wondered if there is any sort of 'crap trap' that could be fitted in front of the filter which could be emptied without removing and replacing the filter each time?

I seem to remember years ago having a car with a glass dome type object, which could be viewed to see if there was any debris in it and could be unscrewed and cleaned out. Is this a possibility?



Deja Moo: The feeling that you've heard this bull before.

You should be able to purchase the plastic type .I have put this in line and prior to the pump (fuel) so that all that crusty bits dont land up clogging the fuel pump.That happened to me once ...the fuel pump was poked and clogged up completely.

Ask your local spares shop and ask for a plastic in line filter .


Technically sound ...Theoretically poked !
