FAQ Spotlight: What Micron Filter Can Be Substituted?


What micron Racor filter can I use if the one I need isn't available?


You can always use a micron level smaller than what you have been using.


Filter life might be a shorter, depending on the fuel quality; but particulate and water protection will be improved.


If the filter is the only one in the system, or the last one before the engine, it must be a 2 micron.


If the filter is a pre-filter ahead of the engine mounted filter, a smaller micron size (10 instead of 30, or 2 instead of 10) will work fine until you can find the micron rating you usually use.
