I made this mini inline fuel filter, yet I didn't try it.

I cut a short piece of silicone tubing. Then I sliced a small piece of foam stripe from a package foam. Placed this small foam stripe into silicone tubing, then inserted two vinyl fuel tubing at both ends. I tried it with a syringe and it sucks air easily. Need to try on engine.

Very good idea, Levent! Will try, but just need to check if the black foam is nitro-resistant?

You are right, if not fuel resistant then I want to try foam pipe insulation. I guess that those foams were made from polyethylene or neoprene.

How about robbing the aerator screen from your kitchen faucet and rolling a tube to go inside the fuel line? Or hitting a smoke shop for a pipe screen?

Either screen option should catch fine floaties and flotsam, and be nitro proof too!

Hi Jim, I also thought this and want to insert a rolled backplate air screen but gave up. Because a fine wire may freed from filter and goes into carb. Other than this wire can easily open a hole in silicone tubing due vibration.
