    Default The shit you get in your tank from Vancouver

    Here are pictures from the SLX and XP.

    Notice the crap in the separators and smeared on the paper.
    It even has some clumpy ones, flakes, and some residuals that felt like an abrasive.

    My skis are covered and parked on a secured storage facility lot and trust they are safe under cameras. So leads me to believe it is just the filling station to blame at this point.

    Filter your fuel twice if buying it downtown on the ocean under the bridge or bring your own.

    Holy crap! No pun intended but that really sucks. I wonder how much of that wonderful sludge I have in my tank and built up in my carbs. I've filled up there a couple times I think.
    I'm guessing the owner doesn't care due to the current shutdown pending situation.

    Right on the money there Kev. It might depend on the volume in the tanker, to say, if they were running low, it may had been the reason.
    Thinking of running a dual filter for just that reason. Maybe a glass one from Lordco. I mean, what can you do when your out there? We're stuck and have to fill up.
    Being it the two skis is obvious to me.
    Pull your separator and look inside, If you see any, let me know as I intend on informing them as this has been a bit of an expense not to mention towing and down time.
