When you drive up to your favorite gas station and fill up on fuel, you start a process that ends with purified fuel entering your engine. The first thing your to do is filter that oil to remove foreign matter that can be found in the fuel in your gas tank. Fuel gets dirty through the various processes it goes through before it gets to your tank. Some of these impurities are created during the production process in the oil refineries. When the fuel is put in trucks to transport to the various gas stations, it also gains many unwelcome particles. These are then increased when the truck has to offload the fuel at your gas station. So, by the time you’re putting fuel in your gas tank, you’re adding in regular fuel plus impurities. If your car were to use gas in this condition, the engine would die in two days. This is why you need fuel filters. They capture all these impurities in your oil, and deliver clean, pure fuel into the combustion chamber.
If you’re neglectful, and haven’t changed your fuel filters in a while, they get clogged. Once they are clogged, no fuel is allowed into the engine, so that means that day, your car won’t start. All engine manufacturers have created a system in which they’d rather your engine have no fuel, than allow dirty fuel into the combustion chamber.
You’re advised to change your oil filters periodically to avoid this situation. Most fuel injection engines use in-line Filtron Fuel Filters. They use a pleated paper medium filtering cartridge that can be replaced when it gets clogged. Their special thin material gives you high filtration so you’re getting all your fuel back. Checking filters allows your engine to stay healthy, it’s recommended to change the filter cartridge after every six months. With Filtron Fuel Filters, consult your vehicles manual to know if they are the right fit for you.
