What do you use?

Postby Sling 2 Pilot » Mon Jun 11, 2018 8:40 pm

When filtering auto fuel from either the pump or container. A quick google search turned up MR FUNNEL, does anyone use it? I’ve found a station near me with ethanol free 91 octane. They have their own separate tank, but I’d still like to ensure I’m not putting contaminated fuel from the container into my plane.

My Sky Arrow was delivered with a Mr. Funnel, which I always use when using mogas. Carry it with me on any trip I think I might be taking on mogas. Don't use it when pumping avgas from a pump.

Mogas should be fairly well filtered at the pump, but when transporting in cans there's always a chance for foreign matter to get introduced.

I recently bought a second Mr. Funnel to keep at our Lenoir City field. They're available on Amazon.com.

I got something like mr funnel at my local auto zone. It comes with a very fine filter and so far has been working pretty well.
I think between fuel containers with their own filters and the funnel, I am likely to catch anything that could potentially cause problems ...

I noticed a stink bug in the bottom of my lawnmower gas tank! Figured it must have been in the nozzle of my gas can...

Whittled a cork to fit the nozzle :wink:
