    194 hr old RXP fuel filter

    Is this how they're supposed to look? Is that some sort of filter material or is that junk that it picked up?
    My buddy has an 05 rxp with 20hrs on it & he lost 400 rpm over the 6 months that it sat & his was this color too. He was told this is why. The new one I bought is all white with no black on it. It took 20 minutes to replace. My buddy said it was a PITA because he was told to move the tank forward and all that mess. I removed the glove box & it came right out.

    Has anyone else changed their filter yet? Was it black too?

    I changed it at 100h, it was slightly yellow, beer-like color, with a few grains of deposits
    It was nowhere as dark as yours, I would have just cleaned it in a bit, but the dealer insisted to replace it, it made of course no difference at all in performance
    What kind of gas do you usually run?
