Check Vehicle Fit

Dirt and even rust can enter the fuel stream at any point along the long journey from refinery to your vehicle’s fuel tank. So, your fuel filter becomes the final line of defense against damaging contaminants getting into your vehicle. Clean fuel, free from dirt particles and rust, is essential for the smooth and efficient operation of your vehicle. A tiny grain of dirt can clog injectors, leading to erratic performance and poor gas mileage. Clean fuel increases gas mileage and improves engine performance - and with the fluctuating cost of gas these days, that’s really important!

Product Features:
  • Defense against damaging contaminants
  • Helps increase gas mileage
  • Improves engine performance

    Comments about Purolator Fuel Filter:

    Previous reviewer was correct. I was replacing a previous purolator fuel filter. New one has flange that makes it difficult when you insert from bottom of bracket. You can spread the bracket far apart to make it fit, but then have to force the bracket back together with vise grips to get the screw in. However, after all this the fuel line would not screw in. Will be returning to store. This was for a 86 S-10 blazer 2.8L.

    Comments about Purolator Fuel Filter:

    Put this in a 88 Chevy S10 Blazer 2.8 and had a real hard time putting it in the mount on the engine. It has a lip at the top that the old fram did not. next time I will make sure there is no lip. I wasted alot of time and had to do substantially more work then I had to.

        Most fuel filters on trucks are located along the frame on the driver side of the truck.
