Can anyone recommend a 10 micron filter to use in a grease conversion?
Pre-filter or inside the car?
I'm going to get this grease project going or die trying.
I am looking for on car inline filter. I see that Greasecar sells a filter with their kit, but does not specify the brand. I would like to be able to buy that brand or similar here on the west coast.
The greasecar filter is a hastings ff827 or A NAPA 3373. These do not have the drain on the bottom. Im not sure what the filter i received with the kit it had a drain .
It was a Fleetguard FF5156. Apparantly Fram, Mann and Baldwin make compatable filters with the drain.
I have the Racor 660rac1210. It has an electric heating element (which only works in cold weather), a water seperator, and a large capacity. You can get the assembly for around $160. Replacement elements are around $25.
I love my kind veggie '77 240D.
I have a pretty big vehicle, so this might be overkill for your application...
Greasel sold me a Racor FH 1000. This is a huge filter with a capacity somewhere around 90+gph. The reason they use such a large filter is that you can run up to 90% blocked and still have good flow.
The FH filter elements are cheap, available in a range of micron ratings, and the filter media itself is designed to block water.
The performance seems great based on my limited (3000 miles) experience, and changing elements is a snap (although I haven't had to yet).
The filter is also internally heated, and has a bowl type water separator.
