Fuel filters keep your fuel clean for optimum performance
Fuel filters are filters in the fuel line that remove dirt and rust particles from petrol or diesel. They are found in most internal combustion engines.
Fuel filters serve a vital function in todayÕs modern, tight-tolerance engine fuel systems. Unfiltered fuel may contain several kinds of contamination, for example paint chips and dirt that has been knocked into the tank while filling, or rust caused by moisture in a steel tank.
If these substances are not removed before the fuel enters the system, they will cause rapid wear and failure of the fuel pump and injectors, due to the abrasive action of the particles on the high-precision components used in modern injection systems.
Fuel filters also improve performance, as the fewer contaminants present in the fuel, the more efficiently it can be burned.
