Goldenrod Water-Block Fuel Filter - 3/4in. Fittings, Model# 496-3/4
immediately upon use cleaned up fuel being dispensed both of particles and water, have not had any problem with dirty filters on equipment since I began use, old style filter from brand X (cheeper) caused many problem by not being efficient.

Exellent product, stops the water in fuel from going into your tank.

get extra filters
These things work great at getting the water out of your fuel but keep extra elements handy because the water they collect will plug them up quickly. Mine stays out in the sun/heat and cold/rain and it holds up well.

I use it on a gas transfer tank and it works great.

didn't work well for me
I bought this to use as a final filter for waste veg oil. I wanted to use the waterblock element to make sure there was no water in the oil before putting into my tank. I used a turtil DC powered gear pump and blew several fuses. It seems like others have successfully used this filter, but maybe I did not have the oil heated enough. I don't think there is enough filter media surface area to be useful in this application.

golden rod water block filter
This filter works well. It will completely shut off your flow if the water content is high. So let your veg. oil settle before pouring it up to filter.

Works good & gives you a piece-of-mind; not worrying about H2O.

Goldenrod water block filter
I have used this with the Tuthill fuel pump, and both work great. I have not seen any water collection in the resevoir that I have used, but I have it for extra protection, just in case.
We had some problems with a fuel pump on a John Deere tractor this summer, due to water accumulation, and as a result, have put this on every transfer station we have. It is cheap insurance, as the fuel pump was $2000 to have rebuilt. Not to mention that these are easier to work with.
