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:

This fuel filter fit perfectly with my 1997 BMW 318ti, just as the website promied. It's has a sturdy construction, and no problems afer 4 months of use. This was part of a tune-up I did, and I had noticble performance and fuel efficiency increase after installation. Good value.

For the install itself, even though I pinched the line with vice grips, the old fuel filter did have some residual fuel in it making for a messy install. That's practically unavoidable. All in all a very easy install, took less than 15 minutes.

        Comments about Purolator Fuel Filter:

        Bought this for a 1998 BMW 328i. Car had been sitting for over 2 years so the purchase was just a "maintenance" to make sure I didn't open up any other cans of worms. The filter was identical to the one installed by the factory, so it slipped into place without too much effort. Perfect fit, and the price was even better.

          It's a fuel filter.... sure it works well... as far as I can tell. The rubber piece surrounding mine wasn't a perfect line up for my 99 bmw 528i but I made it work.

              Comments about Purolator Fuel Filter:

              Gas filter was the wrong size. Our car needed the advanced size which was not available at the time. The book just listed one size for our car and it was the wrong one. Hopefully, your books in the future will reflect the two different types of filters used on a 2001 BMW 325i. It was our fault too for not checking on the size and style before picking it up at the store. I knew that it may be a different one but I trusted the book. I know better.

              • Q:

                This is less expensive because it does not include a pressure regulator. Can my 2001 BMW 525i really get away with this fuel filter instead of the more expensive pressure-regulated ones? BMW specifies a fuel filter with pressure regulator.

                  Hi Joe, happy to help! No, I wouldn't recommend a fuel filter without a pressure regulator. Please go with the one that comes with the regulator.

                Why is the Purolator half the price of the equivalent Fram filter? Is there a quality difference?

                  ya pretty much, just take one apart, a couple grades better than a coffee filter. My beef is the size. it says it fits that's all. Is it the size of a banana, a hotdog, how about some specs, hello.
