Clear plastic one are what I use.

What I don't like about those, is they tend to haze pretty quickly, in the ones I've used.

Must be something in the fuel then or the cheaper version. I use the NAPA gold in mine and except getting mud covered, it's still easy to see into a year or so later.
AMC/Jeep gauges are for amusement only. Any correlation between them and reality is purely coincidental!

Cheaper version, almost for sure. I got a few of them from a buddy for free.

If you look at the $$$ on the glass filters yhe $$$ ranges form $4 to over $50.  I'm guessing there is a huge difference in quality between them.

I would say the same with plastic filters too.

Probably not alcohol rated plastic then.
