Plastic filters on a pressurized fuel line
On my K75, the factory fuel filter fits inside the fuel tank. Wanting more capacity and less hassle when it comes to replacing it, about a year ago I scrapped the old one and installed a new filter outside of the tank.
For a while, I used a metal in-line filter.
Today I went to the auto parts store and they didn't have any metal ones that were small enough for what I needed. So I bought a plastic filter.
But, the line I'm installing it on is AFTER the fuel pump. We're talking high pressure. Just looking at it, the plastic filter doesn't look up to the task. Its stressed by the pressure and looks like it (could) burst.
Is it safe or should I trust my gut?
