Accepted Solution

water/fuel seperator

Would using a after market spin on type water/ fuel filter separator be useful or harmful on my E75DPLSCB ?

With today's fuel , it is the cheapest insurance you will buy! Change the filter often - much cheaper than injectors / pumps

the Evinrude rigging and installation guides recommend a boat mounted fuel-water separator filter to protect the engine.

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. If you elect to do it yourself, be sure to use caution, common sense, and to observe all safety procedures in the vicinity of gasoline, moving engine parts, high temperature components, heavy items, and electrical or ignition systems.

The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.

Re: water/fuel seperator

I thought so. I have had them on a few older outboards with no issues. I read a comment somewhere it was not a good idea on newer 2 stokes. I dont remember the reasoning to the statement. Thanks for the quick reply !
