I am sold! I thought if I was good about using fresh fuel and conditioner, bought from a reputable supplier I would be exempt from strainning.

I have used only two yellow 5 gallon deisel fuel containers from Midwest Can Company since 2006 when my BX24 was new and only purchased fuel from Spencer Fuels here in MI a well known fuel distributor. I have had fuel problems on and off since 2007, ecspecially when the tank was low and the worst being last winter when I had to reverse blow the tank line before the filter to get decent flow again. It was out in the snow while my FEL was piling it high. Well today before I installed my new Bro-Tek skid shields and prepare for winter, I decided to pull the tank and find what has been this mystery blockage. I retrieved four pieces of spiral twist yellow plastic pieces that I match to the vent drilling for the fuel cans. I went to Midwest Can Company's website and see they do not offer vent caps in the handle any longer so they must have heard enough complaints.

At least this winter I have peace of mind with fresh filters, lubricated and skid plates (Thank You Richard Bro-Tek). I will shamlessly plug your product behind my debris bag picture. FILTER THAT FUEL Everyone.

Go Tigers!!!

There is a funnel out there that is actually FAA approved and it strains out any contamination (including water) out of the fuel you pour into it. It's so neat to pour jet fuel with water through it and see it separate the water from the jet fuel.

It's called Mr. Funnel. It's around 20 bucks for a large one. We use one here at the hangar and I'm thinking about getting one for my home.
