I have owned boats up to 54' feet since 1995 (not as long as some) and that has been my experience. At the beginning, however, due to reading too many horror stories about bad fuel, I had a Baja filter on board and a Algea-X FP 500 fuel polishing system (still have it but haven't used it the last two years) and drained the Racor daily. I was obsessed with having super clean fuel! (Single Engine Syndrome) I believe that two stage filtration is more than adequate if one buys his fuel from a reputable source.
