Question What Fuel Filters Do You Run?

I am running a pair of Merc 2.5 EFI Racing Offshores and was wondering what brand Fuel Water Separator many of you run?
I remember reading Aqua Power's instructions saying it was not suited for an EFI application even though I ran it for years on my 2.4 EFI on a Laser.
One old trick was to use a Mark IV auto filter inside the cowl.

Hey Sharkey,

I have merc filters right on the bottom of my fuel pumps. So far so good. I hope that continues! Good luck.

The installation instructions for my 2.5 EFI Offshores specifically list the Mercury fuel/water separator's. My engines were also delivered from Mercury with Kinsler in-line filters to use between the fuel pump and the motors.

Thanks Shane!
I guess my boss has a good heart afterall....
He authorized the afternoon off for me today, (unpaid of course) to go work on my boat. I am desperately trying to make it tomorrow for the kids...
Off comes the interior and time to go thrash on it!
