Default Bulk fuel tank vent - desiccant filter

I'm finally getting ready to set up my 500gal bulk tank.
With the help of the fine folks here, I have my plans pretty much drawn up.
But....when I inquired about this a while back, someone mentioned and supplied a link to a desiccant vent filter for bulk tanks. I thought I had bookmarked it, but I guess not.
Any ideas?
I have to buy everything on-line being that I live in the boonies.
Thanks

Default Bulk fuel tank vent - desiccant filter

avlube.com

i opted for a less effective but lower cost breather filter (it's just a water blocking fuel filter - any air entering or exiting my tank has to pass through it).

Avlube.com has a very impressive desiccant/breather that turns to a different color when it is time to change. They also have a very nice 1 micron filter for the fuel outlet.

Thanks guys - that is what I was looking for.
Now that I read the details, it is kind of expensive - and it will only last 3-6 months.
SUNRG - I like your idea, and thank you for the photo. Like you say - less effective but much lower cost. I will be treating the fuel in the tank also, so this is the route I will likely take.
Thanks!
