Thanks again Steve,
Good point about the water intrusion. I know of several boats that have the fill in the cockpit sole. Could really be an issue here in the great NorthWest... like its raining right now and blowing up into the 60's... good sailing weather.
I was just trying to minimize the long fill hose length and the possibility of out-gassing from that hose. There is a hose sold thru Hamilton Marine that is specific for gasoline that has alcohol in it. $8/ft. its not cheap, but might do the trick. Gonna have to give this some more thought and I agree, I will install the polishing filter from Moyer.... can't hurt and not that expensive. I noticed that you have it all on your A-4. Did it come that way from Moyer? And, why did you choose an A-4 instead of a diesel? What would be the first add-on I should consider for my A-4? Got the elec. fuel pump and the fresh water cooling.
