Re: Flo scan - filter recommendation
Dave has this correct, and you can't beat the RACOR system! The RACOR can be retro-fit to most any fuel filter base as long as you have space for the bottom metal bowl.

I understand that the manufacturer wants a 30 micron filter up-stream of their unit..... and for good reason.
Not that you have suggested this, but the little in-line filters should NEVER become a primary and there is no need for a secondary, IMO!
IMO, you'd be ahead of the game to take your existing fuel filters off-engine and remotely mount them so that your flow sensors can be installed after them.
These will still serve as your primary, and there will be no need for any other filtration.
If you use a 30 micron filter, you have satisfied the manufactuer's requirements.
