    Anyone using a Fuel sock?

    You know.....one of those things you stick in your fuel tank to filter out any debris from the pump or can.

    I am going to do the inline filter...but want the cleanest fuel i can get to the carb.

    So you put an old sock in your tank and pump fuel through it. When you pull it out you drip fuel everywhere, and when you put it back on your skin burns.

    Phelonius, you funny! I haven't tried it, but agree about getting the cleanest fuel to your carb. However, I don't think you will introduce debris into your fuel tank just by pumping it through the nozzle. Just my opinion.

    speaking of debris..I dumped the old fuel out of my tank today so I could add new stuff. I used the siphon hose first, but then when I used my little hand pump the first hose full was full of crud. I had cleaned the tank last year, guess I will have to POR it now. petcock is leaking too, ordered a new one from Babbitts

    Sad thing is you do get debris straight out the nozzle. Look inside your plastic gas can some time. I am happy with my Kreem tank liner which pretty much prevents all rust and an inline filter. There is a filter on top of the petcock already so I don't think an additional fuel sock would help much.

    Filter in the petcock? Thats news to me. So I assume it should be cleaned out on occasion...Im guessing a fine metal screen type.

    I always filter my fuel through the sand I put in my tank to catch any debris, because sand is what we have lots of!!!
