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

          I only use Purolator filters because of quality and ease of use. I have never had a problem with them and have used them on many applications over the last 50+ years.

              It is a high quality product of purelator. This fuel filter has never let me down. One of the main things need to keep a diesel running is clean fuel. With the fuels of today, you need a good brand filter.. This is it.

                  I'm glad to assist, Jeepjunk! This Purolator Fuel Filter (Part No. F56117) for your 2003 GMC Sierra 3500 6.6L Duramax Turbo Diesel is indeed rated at 4 microns. You are also correct the Purolator has made a design change to a plastic fuel filter. Many of the manufacturers of filters for this engine have changed to a plastic filter housing. The new housing will prevent rusting. If for any reason you are dissatisfied with your purchase, please return it to your local Advance Auto Parts store with your receipt.
