Cross Reference Filters:
For a little extra protection and peace of mind, installing a secondary fuel filter is a good investment. A standard factory fitted fuel filter usually removed particulates down to between 2 and 5 micron, which is quite fine and ultimately designed to suit the rest of your fuel systems requirements. Pre-filters (10 micron or more) are generally more effective against water, as it gives the water time to hit the filter element and separate. It’s best fitted before the main filter to remove any water before it reaches the finer micron rated factory unit.
These filter assemblies have a large water collection bowl which allows the operator to visually inspect of water has come from their tank and tried to get to the sensitive engine. Once water is detected it is simple for users to drain this from the bottom of the filter bowl.
Drain the water to determine the level of contamination. Inspect the collection bowl for water daily and service as necessary. Replace the filter at least once a year or when servicing your engine.
