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

    Does not fit 7.3L powerstroke diesel engines installed in E-Series (econoline) chassis. Filter too tall for this app.

      Comments about Purolator Fuel Filter:

      Does NOT fit E-Series Diesels!!! This filter is too tall to fit in the shortened E-series housings on the 7.3L. The filter (and housing) are shortened on the E-Series chassis because the engine was stuffed in with a shoehorn, and there would be inadequate clearance to remove / replace it otherwise.

        It comes with a new top and o ring.Some filters do not have these included. Follow the torque in the instruction to be sure of being leak free.
        I installed it on my 7.3 power stroke.

          Have used the Purolator 55055 Fuel Filter in my 1997 F-350 7.3L Diesel for over 10 years without any problems. I have put 746,000 miles on my first engine, and another 176,000 miles on second engine using this filter. Filter includes cover and seal.
