Hi All

I haven't searched this yet but seeing as I was reading this thread I thought I would ask here first then go and search

Is there a guide for fuel filter change? I'm sure I could look at it and work it out but it makes more sense to read a guide a couple of times before doing it for the first time!

Many thanks,

Dazzle

As long as a filter is not completely clogged, it will filter finer particles the longer it is in place.
At least this is what I was told by a life long mechanic back in the early '70s and has served me well. He drove a '64 Dodge Dart, slant 6 with over 300k miles on the original Engine and car looked like new.

Mix it with the old used oil that burns in a shop heater.

For the $15 dollar the filter costs i do mine every 5000mi. Approx every oil change. You cant have too much clean fuel

I'm the odd Duck, I run mine 1-2 years. But only put about 5-6k a year on it. The add-on 3-mic goes 3 years.
