high volume truck pumps are quite often unfiltered

they'd need a bank of spin on filters to handle the volume, and that would get expensive quickly

eh, just saying
I'd rather wait the extra ten minutes than replace filters on my truck any sooner.

Even the high volume pumps have filters on them. Not sure where you got the idea they don't.

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.

Two Cimtek 30 micron filters will flow 80 gpm in parallel operation And the 10 microns will do the same. They are 5x12'ish. The High flow pumps at my local petrol station have 4 filters in the dispenser. 2 of the 30 micron particle filters. And than 2 10 micron water block filters. When new the pumps deliver ~60GPM.

So, that's 15 seconds for a fill-up and an extra 1 second for the oil bath?

That's still a darn site longer than it takes to change 4 wheels on on a Mercedes....


About 6 times longer....

ah, we don't do the two stage thing, so that's gotta be why the 10s plug up so quick

In Oregon it's a battle--I have to hop out quick and lock the tank so they don't try putting in B20. There are rarely clear signs that I can see until I get up to the pump and look or ask.

Sometimes the attendants are nice about it, but I've had a couple flat out refuse to let me pump. And some stations lock their pumps after hours. I've had to learn where all the "pure" diesel stations are. It spins my head because I grew up in MA, where there are self/mini/full options.

Y'all talk cetain ratings, and I'm just trying to get fuel that won't eat my engine!

At least when I get outside Portland the biodiesel blends disappear.

I don't have filling up at the "gas" station stories these days... it's been routine for quite a long time now. Though funny enough, then neighborhood I live in a few of the kids came up and started asking "how did you make your car sound like that?" with one of the kids suggesting it was a diesel and the other telling him they didn't make diesel cars. That was a bit funny and a chance to educate them on diesels. I encouraged one kid who seemed interested in cars to learn to repair them. We got a few good ones in the neighborhood including one kid who from day one was asking to mow the lawn for $10. It's that kind of drive I can appreciate and relate to. After 3 months of being asked I handed the kit a 10 dollar bill, and asked him to mow it when the grass wasn't so wet. A week later I came home to a freshly mowed lawn. That's all the story I have..

$10 to mow your lawn? Geez, that's $20 minimum down here, usually $25 if you want a decent job done
