RE: Is 10 micron enough?

"The instructor said that the primary has to be a 30 micron to allow adequate fuel flow ..."

Flow rate requirements*can be handled by using a physically larger element.*A too-small 30 micron element is worse than a marginal sized 2 micron element.

It is entirely*possible to install a single large 2 micron filter at the tank outlet and leave the OEM engine filters as delivered.

Whether it is practical or not is up to the user.
