<VV> PARTS Cleaner update

 Ya know, having dealt with streams at work with mega suspended solids, we NEVER resorted to filtration. Settling works very well, and nothing plugs up. Not fast enough? There are centrifuges out there that'll clear the crap out in a New York second! Filters simply don't have the ability to hold enough crap and still maintain a good flow rate. 
Let it settle, and decant off the top liquid.

Well, here is another shot at it, I use this system to clean fuel that has 

been in tanks for a while.  pumps out, thru filter, and back into tank or 

external container.  takes longer to clean if you keep recirculating, but 

don't advise leaving this running by itself for long, safety first.

Not so cheap, tho, unless you have these gadgets laying around anyway.

A low pressure ( 6-15 lbs ) electric fuel pump ( $40 at  o reilleys. )

6 feet of rubber fuel line and handful of hose clamps, worm gear type.

big " sintered metal " type inline fuel filter.

cut 3 ft of line for input side, 3 ft for output side.

I use the filter on the output side, but depending on fuel pump, might be ok 

on input side.

Reverse flush the filter when done, the sintered bronze types will last 


I am sure there are variations.  watch for the sparks when attaching to 

source batttery, around gasoline.
