I have one of those clear fuel filters on my Beetle and it usually only has maybe three tablespoons of fuel visible most of the time. Is this correct? Seems to me it should be full all the time? Engine runs ok most of the time, just curious.

You'd think that it would be full all the time, but everyone that I know describes the same thing.

One of mine stays about 1/3 full and goes to 2/3 full when runnning.  It is on a superbeetle and is almost horizontal.  The other one is one is on an oval window and it stays about a 1/3 full all the time.  It is amost vertical.

Hmmmm.  Never gave it much thought but mine has always had about half volume of air present.  The only time it gave me pause and trouble was when there was nothing but air present due to a kink in the line as it passed out of the tank.  Dan in Goderich
