better fuel filters

the typical cheapo in-line fuel filter i see sold for mowers.. those clear plastic ones with the orangish paper element arent that great.

these are the cheap ones im talking bout:

of course these same ones are sold thru j thomas etc but u get the idea.

does anyone know a source for really good in-line fuel filters? i think those standard replacement ones filter to 75 microns, i would prefer at least below 30 microns.

this is for a 14hp kohler .. not exactly sure the fuel line I.D. , but im sure its pretty standard for a 48" WB with a mid size kohler. maybe 1/4"

i know some of you guys that use amsoil and the 15 micron oil filters have looked into this, i'm particularily interested to hear from you.

I buy the Large Toro filters. I cant think of what the part # is but I know they are an Onan filter. ??-7460 I think is the part number. I bought some of the cheapo J thomas filters and had the fuel lines come off the filter. The Toro filter has a different type of edge that kinda acts as a retainer. The arent cheap, I pay $5 each for them but I have never had a problem like I had with the cheaper filters.
