I have a facet electric fuel pump plumbed in-line just after my gacolator. The fuel pump calls for a 74 micron fuel filter prior to the pump. I am using a Flow Ezy Filter which is about 6 inches long, so its really messing up my fuel routing inside the cabin. I think I have it figured out now, but its just a mock up. I need to put my on/off valve prior to the filter so I can service the filter at annual. This only works because I do not have pax side brakes. Admittedly, I have not reinstalled the floor to see what kind of clearance I have between the filter and the horizontal rudder pedal bar.

You could eliminate the extra filter by installing a filtering gascolator similar to this:

Jeff, I think you just cost me about $300. Thanks for the tip on this. I think it fits the bill for what I need. Much cleaner routing this way!
