WEST MARINE Fuel Filter Funnels

Fuel/Water Separator

These filters were tested by Powerboat Reports (March 2003) and rated better than other more expensive funnels. Teflon-coated, stainless-steel filter separates water and dirt from gasoline, diesel and kerosene fuels. Made from industrial standard electroconductive polypropylene that can be grounded for extra safety. Fuel flows quickly through the filter into the tank and water stays in the funnel. NOTE: In addition to water and sediment, a small amount of residual fuel remains in this filter's sump after use all of which must be disposed of properly.

  • Tested and rated by Powerboat Reports (March 2003) better than other more expensive funnels
  • Separate water and dirt from gasoline, diesel and kerosene fuels
  • Teflon-coated stainless steel filter and electroconductive polypropylene body
  • Self-cleaning

    Comments about West Marine Large Funnel - 5gpm, 10"h X 8-1/2"dia., 100 Micron:

    Ideal for all fuels. Especially useful for diesel fuel. With varying quality of diesel fuel out there, you MUST pre-filter it for your marine engine.

    Filters quite well. The internal sump holds a few ounces of liquid. This is a feature of the filter. In the case you get water in the fuel- it will sink into the sump and get captured. This is NOT a 'con' !!

    It WILL slow your fillup as it filters, so be patient. The few minutes it takes to filter is a lot better than the hours it takes to wait for a tow!

    You will have to have a plan on how to dispose of the few ounces of fuel left in the filter, and clean/stow the filter after use. I always have a heavy (4-6 mil ) plastic bag handy and tie it off well after use.

        Good filtering qualities and removes the water before it gets to the tank - very important. I use it no matter where I get fuel. I don't care if it comes from the marina, Walmart, or an Exxon station, you cannot trust your fuel to be clean of water. Use this every time and you will have fewer engine headaches. The residual fuel/water can be easily poured back into a container. Once that container is full, I pour it back into the filter and all that is left is water. This is disposed of at my local auto shop.

          I have used it for years for gas in my Cessna and diesel in my sailboat. *** I add water to the filter to get the remaining fuel to raise above the lip in the bottom of the funnel.***

          This would be a great tool if it weren't for the 3 ounces of fuel that does not enter the filter to get into the tank. It remains at the bottom of the cone where the lip is too high for those last few ounces to drain completely.

          Works great to remove water but messy

          By Chautauqua Dave

          About Me Casual/ Recreational

          Pros

          • Easy to Use
          • Messy but worth it
          • Visibly removed water

          Cons

          • Messy
          • Residual gas to deal with

          Best Uses

          • Outdoor

          Comments about West Marine Medium Funnel - 3.5gpm, 8-3/4"h X 5-1/2"dia., 100 Micron:

          This product worked to remove water but was a little messy dealing with residual gasoline. It slows down the fueling process because of the fine filtering action, but the funnel is large enough that it made it easy to fill up a jet ski or boat gasoline tank without excessive spills!

              Filters the diesel before it hits our tank, but there is always residual fuel left behind in the filter, which you have to waste by absorbing it in a rag...
