Fuel draining back into tank

2 posts in this topic

I think this has been well covered before, but I cannot find a thread. I have placed a fuel filter between the bulb and the engine fuel intake. Saturday I noticed that the fuel was not visible in the glass filter case. In the past, I remember the fuel visible in the filter case. So I pumped it up from the in floor tank. Filled up nicely. Then drained back into tank. Thinking something was wrong, I put a new bulb on. I keep two for backup. Same thing happened. Is this normal? I don't want to go out on the water next weekend and have problems. The filter is installed in the following manner: inlet to engine...filter with arrow pointing toward engine...new bulg with arrow pointing to engine...fuel line to inboard tank. Thanks for the help in advance.

On all our big boats the marine dealer installed the fuel filter before the bulb. I would talk to your dealer, because you might have the setup backwards.
