standard 10 micron ones like we got on the pumps where I work?

They're about 4" dia and 8" long, and they only last a few months, low volume gasoline (maybe 10 loads of a thousand gallons) spread out across two separate filters. Shake them out and the fuel looks like mud. We change them when the pumps get slow.

I'd imagine to get the kind of flow the 1.5" truck nozzles can do you'd need some BIG dang filters, or a bank of the smaller ones.
I can see a screen on the pump inlet and a 125 micron spin on screen before the meter.
