The particles that your fuel filter encounters, may get caught stops contaminants found in fuel which can include rust, metal chips, dust, and other solid particles. When you have a restricted flow, the particles may continue to flow throughout your fuel system, wearing out the fuel pump and resulting in more problems. The effects of inadequate fuel filtration can be:
– a significant decrease in engine pow
– a disturbance of the fuel supply
– any damage to fuel-system components
The cleaner the fuel system, the more efficiently your vehicle will operate. Even a slight reduction in fuel flow can affect your vehicle’s overall performance and fuel efficiency. After having a new fuel filter, you notice a boost in fuel economy and overall performance.
