How long will it take to filter an entire tank full of fuel if I just let
the car idle? I'm getting tired of replacing filters by the roadside.

  I pumped some fuel out for some odd reason, using the return line.
It took about 10 to 15 minutes/gallon as I recall, maybe 20 minutes.
It was really slow!  You get a bit more return at idle than under
throttle but if you had higher rpm with low load you'd likely get more.
Driving it is a lot less of an annoying way to run it through than
sitting an idling!  ;-)
