Fuel filtration plays a vital role in the preventative maintenance of your fuel system.
The two primary sources for fluid contamination are water and dirt. Dirt usually comes from the bottom of the fuel storage tanks. Rust is caused by poor maintenance and free water sitting in the system for long periods of time. Therefore, the small contaminant particles are present in any fuel system no matter how careful you are.
Given that some newer engines eject fuel at 30,000 PSI even a small amount of dirt or water corrosion can cause damage to your fuel system. Anything from tiny scratches to permanent damage to key components of the system can happen.
