When I watch the pros on TV anytime they are pouring fuel in the car I see a filter/screen that stretches over the funnel. Anyone know who makes these?

I've seen some guys stretch a piece of ladies nylons over their funnel. Wonder what the micron rating is on that? lol

Here's an inexpensive option:

Hey grandfather use to use old pantyhose for paintfilter when paint had trash in it,worked great. Pretty fine mesh also.Those old guys knew how to make use of everything to keep from spending buck. Not suggesting it just saying it probably works.

What's the problem? Don't want to dilute your collection? Ice Cream

Just ordered one, I'll let you know.

I would think that if it works with gas it will be OK with alcohol. Gas is much more of a solvent than alcohol is..........

IMHO filtering the fuel is important, but it can be a simple effort.
I pump from drums into 5 gal jugs and have 5 in my trailer.
I have one jug with the hose spout that is dedicated to refueling my car.
I use a large red funnel with a built in, but removable fine mesh filter and refill my dedicated jug using it when it is empty at the track.

I filter from the drum to the jug, from the jug to the cell. I don't run a filter on my car.

Paul, I have one of the triangular funnels with the filter in it, but on my car with the front mounted fuel tank I can't use it. There is a baffle and return tubes directly below the fill cap. I made a funnel that screws in the same as the filler cap. The Outerwears screen/filter looks like it will be the ticket.

The OUTERWEARS fuel funnel pre-filter will help prevent water, in the form of gas can condensation from entering your tank during refueling. This will also filter out wind-blown sand and dirt particles as small as . 005" in diameter keeping fuel systems clean. PRE-MIX is no problem!!


How does that work?

quote:
Outerwears Pre-filters are designed to enhance the efficiency of any performance or exposed air filter. The Pre-filter is constructed with a proprietary polyester mesh with uniform micron openings, treated with an optional hydrophobic water-repellent process. The mesh is UV resistant, filters debris down to .005”, is shatter proof in freezing temperatures, and resistant to heat up to 450 degrees. The material is puncture resistant and has elasticity characteristics allowing the threads to return to the original position in the event the threads have been impacted or shifted. The manufacturing process incorporates a welded seam for strength, or reinforced industrial grade thread to fill needle holes and to reduce potential failure points in the material. The top seam utilizes specialized thread and cording (ON LARGER PIECES W/TOPS) to reinforce durability of the top. Six stock colors are available in either regular or the water-repellent variety. Special colors are available with appropriate volume. Pre-filters are designed to deflect the damaging debris, which clogs air filters, compromising peak air-flow and horsepower. The Pre-filter also extends the time between servicing intervals reducing costs and increasing convenience for the consumer.


So do the pro teams use it to pre-filter the fuel and also to ensure no added water contaminates it?

I never use that funnel to put fuel in the cars tank.
I figured if I filter it going in the jugs and I'm golden. I have never raced in an area that I had to worry about junk getting into my tank when refueling and use this hose on my dedicated jug.
I like using this hose as I can easily see the level in the tank and avoid over fills.

I tried one of those hoses and it's just too difficult to fill this tank because of the baffle and tube directly below the opening. There is literally only 3/8ths below the fill hole. My screw in funnel works great. I used a fill cap, cut a hole in it and TIG'ed an aluminum funnel to it.
