fuel water separator

Recommended Posts

I have a 2016 Malibu Response LXR, last fall when I went to winterize the engine I could not locate a fuel water separator.  To be clear, there is not one on the boat.  The engine is a 350 monsoon.  Is there any reason why they aren't installed on new boats? Should I add one? Thanks

Unless your experiencing issues with repeated water in fuel , no

had 2 boats without, one with and the one that did was installed on a whim like this when I experienced a starting issue 

all 3 boats never had s water problem and 1st two were stainless tanks (that your ‘16 and my ‘14 don’t have ) , one stainless tank with separator one stainless tank without , no water issues, I’m in super humidity country though less in fall winter, even though it’s actually pretty high even in winter

where you winterize, you tend to have very dry winters so with your plastic tank and less humidity even a non full tank should have minimal condensation

My inlaws black scorpion powered 04 LXI has one - only ski boat I've ever seen one on.   Replaced it a few years ago and there was zero water.  Not really an issue unless you are buying fuel that is full of water.

My old 1990 Euro I had one. It did have some water in it every once in a while at the beginning of the season. I always assumed it was condensation from cold water boating. I use my boat late in the fall and early in the spring.
