AUTOMOTIVE AND LIGHT TRUCK FUEL FILTERS
A high-quality WIX fuel filter is essential for protecting advanced fuel injection systems from contaminants that may be in the fuel, allowing an engine to run trouble free and at peak mile-per-gallon performance.
All of the fuel that enters the engine must first pass through the fuel filter. Which means the high efficiency and unmatched fuel cleansing performance provided by WIX fuel filters is vital for long and trouble-free fuel system and engine life.
Originating from dirty and rusty service station tanks or from corrosion in fuel system components as a vehicle ages, dirt, rust, scale and water are the major impurities present in fuel. These contaminants can plug injectors and carburetors, causing engine malfunction and deterioration.
WIX spin-on and cartridge-type fuel filters are engineered and built for long life and the possibility of extended service intervals. And, WIX fuel filters are simple to replace – our spin-on filters even feature built-in gaskets.
In recent years many foreign nameplate automobile manufacturers have added new brackets to the packaging of their replacement fuel filters. These brackets make installing the fuel filter a less time intensive process for technicians, especially in northern environments where the bracket mounts have a tendency to rust due to adverse weather and road conditions. The bracketed fuel filter addition to WIX’s product portfolio adds to the depth and breadth of our foreign nameplate product coverage.
