Engine compartment temperatures can soar on hot summer days creating high gasoline temperatures. High temps and agitation caused by rough seas can aerate the gasoline in the water/fuel separator filter turning it into foam. A fuel pump can't pull aerated gasoline from the water/fuel separator and pump it to the carburetor or fuel rail efficiently. The engine will show signs of gasoline starvation (lean) at high speeds, a situation very similar to vapor lock.

Because this aerated gasoline rises to the top of the water/fuel separator filter, GLM has introduced a water/fuel filter separator mounting bracket with a fuel pick-up extending deeper into the filter. Through extensive research and testing the GLM engineers have found the optimum location for the fuel pick-up. The deeper location is low enough to be free of aerated gasoline but high enough to be free of the water in the bottom of the separator.

The deeper fuel pick-up is only found on the new GLM water/fuel separator mounting bracket kits. It might solve some of those mysterious fuel delivery problems your engine may be experiencing!


*For trouble free boating always remember to replace your water/fuel separator filter after every 50 hours of engine operation!
