Previously I used the Ryco Z14, worked well, but it was not translucent.
The benefit of the glass bowl is you can see any sediment or junk that collects on the bottom, instead of it getting into the vacuum tank or carby.
About every 6-9 months the amount of rubbish becomes visible, a quick 5 minutes to pull apart and clean, and you are back in business.
This is the set up on the Red Chev
This blow up clearly shows the sediment and rubbish on the bottom right hand side. And as my fuel lines were replaced during the restoration, and the fuel tank is lined with a coating one can only assume the sediment is in the fuel. Makes you wonder what is coming out of the gas pumps.
The Z14 filter that I used up until a few years ago. Gave no trouble, changed them every 6-12 months, but you could never see what was inside.
