    How often do you change you filters?

    It would depend on the type of filter you have. I put in a Raycor water separating filter and it has lasted for years. I dump it often and it has not been a problem. I suffered with the old filters clogging at the worst possible time and now no problem. What type of filter are you using?

    Default Yearly

    Mine does not have a water drain so I change the Raco every spring. EVERYTHING, gets changed in the spring, plugs, lower unit, impeller...... Prince William Sound is beautiful but not very forgiving.

    I change my Raycor once a year.
    Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.

    I always carry a shammy cloth - the kind you polish your car with - when I'm out on the water or in some situation where I might run into bad gas with water or muck in it.

    Saved my butt once when I was on the east side of Admiralty Island with somebodies unfamiliar motor. Poor the gas through it and it catches the water. Most times a good filter is all you need - but a shammy takes up so little space it's good security. Especially if you are going to be refueling in some remote funky place.

    Every spring before the first launch. I then carry the old one for a spare.

    I don't know what brand I have on. I think I might have to check it out.
