Wanted some input on fuel filters I have a 93 commander with 454. I am running two canister Type fuel filter coming from each tank but it appears it's hard to prime each tank after the boat sits. I am thinking of eliminating those filters and run the hoses from each tank to my electronic valve. then after both hoses go into the valve they leave into one hose so that's where I run a small inline filter.

That's how I have mine set up, from the tanks to the valve to inline fuel filter to water fuel separator to fuel pump. My filter is glass and has a changeable filter so u can see when it's time.

From tanks to water fuel separator to electric pump to see through filter to carb

This is how mine was rigged by Eliminator in '76. tank to fuel filter, to switching valve, to fuel pump.

Every spring, I change both filters, and never had a problem.

I always carry a spare. 60 to 70 hrs per year.

Tanks to selector - single hose to can filter to carb. I don't have a problem priming.

I was thinking about ditching my can filter and putting in line filters after the tank on each line. Not sure if there is better "performance" either way. I like what whiteboy said about being able to see the filter...
