fuel filter

i have read threads were it is better to filter the fuel before you poor it into the quad/dirtbike. Both my quad and dirtbike are fuel injected, and i have read it is very important to filter the fuel for the fuel pumps. I was wondering how you guys filtered your fuel. I was thinking of buying one of those square jugs and finding an inline filter that would attach to the filler hose. Anyone try this out?

Bought one of these a long time ago, Bikemaster 5/16" Chrome Fuel Filter | Motosport , seems to work well. Just something to consider as an alternative.

Perfect. Do you have a picture of how you have it mounted though? Not fully understanding how you have it mounted. Thanks!

I use a regular large opening funnel with an elastic outer wear over it. Works for me.

I use one of those paint filters that you can buy at any autobody store. They trap everything. Just use a new one every fill up. They fit right into my funnel too.
