I'm surprised this was not picked up on. Gasoline is a lot lot lot LESSviscus than gasolene. I think someone needs to do research on the porosity (sorry for the spelling) of both oil and gas filters, but I don't see how the difference pertains to this thread.

This thread has been very valuable and there are lot of good ideas. I just hope that someone comes up with a replacement filter.

Everyone that participated has had great ideas.

Do you really think anyone at WH knows the specs for "their" fuel filter ? They're probably just glad someone decided they'd make that odd thing anyway, especially after the last guy went bellyup.

It's been well over 2 weeks since I sent them an email asking for info and no reply.

I received my certified mail receipt today and that my letter was received and signed for on 10-18-07. So let's see how long it takes to get a reply, if I get one of any kind. They have my postal address, my email address and my phone number.

For what it may be worth...I recently changed my gas filter at some 16,000 + miles for the first time.

I can report that during the first long trip just completed, I sensed a little more acceleration when needed and climbing power on mountains.

Now when I changed the filter, I cut it open and was surprised at the dark appearance of the filter medium and what looked like large dirt particles.

It looks to me that WH knows that changing the filter at 12,000 miles is important.

I just changed my first 2004 series filter yesterday! Now I can list that in my resume!

Regarding the filter I removed, it was an original filter off of a 2004 W24 HR and the undercoating got all over my hands. Yuk!

I was able to blow through the filter. It wasn't clogged.

It doesn't have to be completely plugged to inhibit the fuel flow to put you into limp home mode or leave you on the side of the road.

A human being can only put out maybe 1 or 2 psi and if I can force fuel through the filter a 55-60 psi pump would do a much better job than I can.

It was definitely time for that owner to change his filter I can guarantee that much!

It depends - the average person, yes. But, Mike you are kinda special and I think you can move a bit more "Air" than the average Joe

Dale was that "HOT" or "COLD" air you were thinking that Driver can move?

Not sure blowing air and pumping gas are comparable. Fluids are harder to pump. It's a combination of flow at pressure that count.

Yep, that's Driver !!

While this is fun, Driver has largely provided good and useful info for us.

Yikes! If my small point was taken as criticism I apologize. Driver is obviously generous with his knowledge and valuable contributor.

Not trying to "roast" anyone. I think we all tend blow a little "HOT" air at times. I suspect that I would be right up near the top

Just having a bit of fun with my old bud Mike.

It's all good!

iRV2 is designed to be as much fun as it informative.

It is my hope that it's what makes us different and that folks enjoy coming here everyday to see what's going on over at iRV2.
