Re: best veg filter?
Well it's hard to say, all veggier's have different needs. If you have a lot of time to heat and settle that you won't care so much about which filter you have. Sock filters are cheaper $5-$10 but maybe a little messier when changing. Paper element filters work well and sometimes come with water blocking features as a fail safe. These are the more serious type of filters used in high gpm such as heavy eqipment. These often have a settling/sight bowls too in order to see fuel/sediments. Almost twice the price as sock filters to replace though $10-$20 and can range from $30(golden rod) to $300 (Racor). Then there's spin on filters which are good for the on vehicle filter because of its compactness and ease to change. Plus when you store extra filters in your vehicle they're more durable to being shoved around. They're about $10-$20 as well.
I've used them all, and I still like a centifuge. Never replace a filter again and no settling needed. If you don't settle with filters you'll burn through them fast! Plus a centrifuge you can just run for hours on end and can forget about it. A filter has to be monitored to see if it is clogged or not. And can risk contamination if it fails.
