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:

EXERCISE CAUTION! - this fuel filter does not come with the foam sock as depicted in the picture, which gave me some concern. I don't know if it makes a difference or not, but after conducting some online investigation I decided to return this for the OEM Motorcraft part. Supposedly the OEM lower frame rail filter with the sock is better at handling water separation due to a weep hole located just above the filter's centerline. This Purolator did NOT have the weep hole. So with as infrequently I change the fuel filter, better to be safe than sorry on this one.

    • Q:

      Why does the water/fuel seperator, (the big filter), not match the filter I took out of the housing on the driver side frame just forward of the fuel tank?

        This kit is for the 6.0, 363 cid navistar diesel in Ford Super Duties from late 2003 to early 2007; the large filter goes near the frame under the driver's seat and the smaller filter goes under the hood by the oil filter. It is supposed to be equal or as good as Motorcraft.
