Fuel filter on a 2-stroke?

Recommended Posts

Would it be reasonable to put a fuel filter onto a 2-stroke or would the filter get gummed up to quickly?

Theres a fuel screen above the petcock in the.tank.

A secondary filter is decent insurance, but not really necessary unless the oem filter has a problem.

 

No, it wont get gummed up with 2 stroke fuel.

My 200 has an (aftermarket) inline fuel filter. It doesnt get gummed up and is good insurance. It's only a couple of bucks so I would do it.

I have had one on my trials bike for about a decade running 50:1 and never had a problem with oil. Has caught a lot of stuff though.

I run one, but it never seems to get any stuff in it.  It is a potential weak link where a leak can happen.  It might be more prudent to put a screen inside your filler cap.

NO! It is not safe. Lawn mowers can run it but a high compression, high performance race bike needs more octane to keep it from knocking. I've ran 89 once in a 450 and wasn't a good idea. Your manual says 93 or better that's what it means. You will have detonation if you run that. Very risky.

Fuel filters lower octane rating?

I drain it from the filter and put it in my pie recipe

I wouldn't do that unless its caster oil,then it would still give you the runs.

 

I'd use it to shine my bling make it mo blingier.

I use it to clean the outside cover around the fuel filter

You guys just want to put a fuel filter just for the sake of doing some and any kind of "add-on" to your bike.

 

When will the madness end!  Maybe you all should hang a wicker basket on your handle bar too...... just for the sake of having "add-on's".  Geez.

I've had fuel filters take the oil out of the gas

I actually commented on a different thread that asked if you could run 90 octane in a 2 stroke but it sent it here. Weird sorry.
