    Well this setup is for a oil furnace so it will be adequate. This may also be the first step before an investment in a centrifuge... I've been eyeballing some vehicles but haven't pulled the trigger yet.

    So just a couple comments. I bought all the components new save a couple of pics of threaded pipe, and a pice of aluminum to mount it to. I'm in the whole thing about $330.

    The inside of the clear tube is 3/4 inch and the outside is 1" but don't think you can out on a hose clamp that size get one bigger and save yourself the cursing. The bottom plug was metric thread so I used a 90 deg metric to hydro coupler and just ran the hose up the side then put the valve on.

    I know this could be done cheaper by scrounging but I needed it right now and you can't beat how easy it is to move around. I have a big tote to store and settle my oil/gas mix so this will likely just be a container to warm and filter the oil for the furnace. I'll update after I get some gallons under my belt.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...c80c6dbf9b.jpg

    I've started using this for my heater project and it's working good. If you need to figure out the fuel level in the tank what you should do is release the pressure in the tank then open the large ball valve on top to let the pressure equalize. It may take a min or 2 as the oil moves out of the filters. Hope that helps. I also added a 3 way valve with a JIC connection. That way I can feed the furnace or pump out the tank to another container.

    Good thinking with the 3-way valve! I should have done that.
