I borrowed a friend's portable filtering setup when I first bought my Albin. I filtered from one tank into the other and when that tank was empty I inspected thru a hatch and there was no visable crud to speak of...also ran the intake hose and fitting under the baffles and as far as I could tell there wasn't any gunk buildup.
Then I filtered back into the original tank and did the same type of inspection.

After filtering approx 300 gallons of fuel the filters did not look dirty to me. I expected crud but they were pretty clean.
Can I assume that the reason for the Gulf Coast filter was for doing the heavy lifting of the filtering work and the Racor 900 was used because of the clear bowl allowing for the monitoring of your progress?
