On my boat the cross line is the same diameter as the fuel feed and return lines I believe. I was told that they don't tend to work great on this boat as a way to equalize the fuel level without a transfer pump. I have thought that it should be pretty easy to add a filter in the transfer line, as long as I can find a spot for it.
