I am in the process of installing a canister style fuel filter. How do most of you that use them have 'em plumbed ? I was thinking of setting it up so that I can use my fuel hose direct to tank or through the filter (ie... a male plug to go in to at either source. comments please.

If it were me, I'd put a male-male hose barb in my toolbox, and use all-SS hose clamps on the fuel lines. Then I could hard plumb it, and have the parts to reroute it if I had to. I've had too many leaky connections with quick-connect fittings. Things bump them and pop them off at the worst times...

For whatever reason you would want to bypass the water separating fuel filter, which I can't imagine (it's easy to simply carry a spare $7 filter), you could use one of Tempo's two way selector valves before the filter and plumb it permanently. One leg goes into the filter, the other to a separate gas line. You would need two primer bulbs and engine connectors with this setup.

sounds like the best alternative is what you both suggested ... a spare barbed fitting and a spare filter canister. (belt and suspenders) ... thanks
