is it reliable fuel thank embeded filter?

i tested fuel tank embeded filter works well.

is it nessary for additional fuel filter between fuel tank and engine niddle?

1) additional fuel filter also can not protect from subtle dust.

2) additional fuel filter works well for subtle dust.

how about your opinion?

Those pictures tell a thousands words...... Solve it with in line fuel filter.

Mugen Fuel Filter is the best quality. Novarossi is fine. BTW, keep the fuel line short.

Wow thats pretty good for those conditions. Luckily itll never get like that and what does bypass is problably pretty small. To where an inline probably wouldnt stop any more.

Thats just it Gansei ,where do we draw the line ??? is it sufficient or not enough.
I dont see a problem with adding a additional filter so long as its not restrictive.
If you want the best filtration you are going to sacrifice flow as it will be slow the fuel flow down and possibly effect top end or lean out teh top a bit.

I wash my fuel bottle regularly and rinse out my tank too,so dont see a need for a extra filter.
Even my fuel, gets filtered after i mix it when bottling it, using a good quality automotive filter.

Seems to me to get that much dirt in any one tank at a single race would be very hard to do. I really think that the filters do a fine job. an INS box can and will also prevent the debris that you have shown in the pictures. I would personally say that any one true racer that could accumulate that much dirt in a single day in his car is one that is not in tune with the proper maintenance. Now I know that you are just doing this to prove a fact but not you but anyone that would allow their car to get that dirty to allow that much crap in the tank deserves what they get......
