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

Changing your oil is a difficulty level 1, Changing an Engine is a difficulty level 5. I have had oil filters that were harder to change.

      Easy to install. This filter is often forgotten and can get dirty enough to keep your engine from starting.

        Comments about Purolator Fuel Filter:

        Bought for a 1981 Fiat Spider. This is an exact replacement for the car. Even though its a very large filter most smaller cars from Europe use a large high capacity filter. The mounts and shields mount the same as when it came from the factory.

            The filter fit into my brother's 1998 VW Jetta with over 220k miles on it, and was able to improve his gas mileage greatly during a cross country trip from Michigan to Utah. Great product for a fair price!

                what is the micron rating

                  A:

                  The term applied to a filter or filter medium to indicate the particle size above which all suspended solids will be removed throughout the rated capacity. It is a measure of the pore size in the filter media, expressed as either ‘Nominal’ or ‘Absolute’. Nominal Rating relates to the percentage of particles at a given size that a filter can capture ie; 10 microns at 90% means it will remove 90% of particles 10 microns in size. Absolute refers to the removal of all particles at a given micron size and larger ie; 20 micron absolute means 100% of particles 20 microns or greater will be captured. The lower the micron rating, the greater the efficiency and hence the amount of dirt that is captured.
                  For compatibility of this part with your vehicle, please provide your vehicle make, model and engine specification.

              • Q:

                Picture shown and the one that needs to be replaced in the car are not the same visually. The 1994 BMW 325ic fuel filter is much longer and has a black band around the middle for protection from the mounting bracket. Is the Purolator filter in fact an exact match?
