Fuel filters: Are there more than one?

Hi everyone,

I've changed the main fuel filter up front (under the shut off) and wondering if there are any other [pre]filters somewhere? Perhaps in the tank itself or before the IP?

I'm having slow take-off's (well slower than normal being a NA), so before doing a purge I wanted to eliminate fuel restrictions.

Thanks

I'll start with beginning "tank strainer". Whats the best way to go about this one? Is it a fuel tank out job or can it be accessed from underneath?

Thanks

I would think it would make most sense simply to replace the pre-filter (since you've already replaced the secondary one). It's only those two that are part of regular maintenance.
