Default Best Place for fuel filter

The one in my rhino was pretty small, only possible to get 4mm tube on it. The diagram shows it between valves and turbine. Is the best place or would it be better somewhere else? I do filter from jug to fuel cells as well. THanks my rhino runs great on the bench will be in the jet this weekend woot!

IMO the best place to put it would be where the manufacturer said to put it. IMO

Well not everything in the book has been correct, as far as the diagrams. It shows the manual shutoff in wrong location, so I figured I would ask is all. I would agree normally I just follow the instructions.

It shows a filter between the Fuel solenoid valve and the engine, and no filter between the Gas solenoid and the engine... I think I would filter before the Tee so both inputs are final filtered... I would holler at Eric on this... Doesn't seem right to me either. If it is, I would like to know the reasoning behind it.. The Gas line from the valve is 3mm and I would think the injectors are smaller for the Kerostart therfore the filter would seem more important on that one......??? Cofused....

Fuel filter before the turbine.. so that it catches any metal from the gears wearing out.

Easy trick
Get a small pointy pliers and insert the point inside the tubing and open the pliers a little bit, insert deeper the tubing and open them again,
when you think you got enough tubing inside the pliers take the tubing out and go for the filter
Hope this helps, sorry for the spanglish
