Pick up filters in Jabiru wing tanks?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else heard about small filters installed in Jabiru wing tank fuel pick up lines? Possibly a sintered bronze type?

 

This was mentioned to me a few days ago by someone who has a problem with a 2008 J230. I am extremely sceptical that if these filters exist, they could start to be a problem after 10 years.

 

My J230 is a similar vintage and running fine and I doubt that these filters, if real, could be causing this owner’s problem.
