Yes.

That's it, I'm going to buy a pack of Fram fuel filters and slap a K&N label on each one, then sell it for double price and claim that it never needs to be replaced, you just wash it out backwards and put it back in. (I actually have 30 micron fuel filters that you don't replace, you just wash them backwards and reinstall them. They're stainless mesh.)

Better yet, I'm going to tell them that it doesn't need washed at all - you just remove, flip it over, and install it in the other direction...

Do you really? What vehicle or fuel, do you use them for? I don't know if I've ever seen a 1 micron SS mesh filter. I didn't know they made them that fine.

I dunno about 1 micron, I said 30. I use them on my garden tractors (Ironically, I don't have a garden.) and used to use them on carb'd trucks, too.

It's a stainless mesh inside a glass tube, when it gets crudded up, you take them apart and clean the mesh, then put it back together and you're good to go.

They're inline type filters, like the WIX ones that you can buy from the parts store for $2, except mine are like $10. Refills for them can be gotten from Summit and even some L&G stores.

Sorry I took it as 30 1 micron fuel filters, & not how you intended a 30 micron filter. That I have seen in SS mesh.

Thanks for the clarification,
Dave

Oh, noes! If I had access to 1 micron SS mesh, I'd be selling these things at a premium!
