    Fuel Filter

    Well, I went a bit past 30000 miles and I figure it's about time to get a new fuel filter... I went to discount auto and the only fuel filter they sell is the purolator brand. I was wondering if there is a big difference in fuel filters, and if anyone out there has a brand they would recommend for good flow/filtration/longevity and maybe where to get it..... thanks,

    hippy

    wix filters are typically regarded as a high quality filter.

    i run wix air, fuel and oil exclusively. some trade publications also claim that wix filters have good resistance to fuel system treatements and the corrosian side effects assoicated with them.

    if you need the part number, i can grab it for you.

    I don't like dealerships, especially the local subaru ones. If I don't have to give them any money, I won't!

    Purolator is a good company, I'm pretty sure they're still around cuz they make some quality shizzle. If it doesn't work well, you can sue the shizzle out 'em. Hey if they use them for nascar it must be good right??

    It's just a fuel filter anyways, long as there is no suger in your tank from your ex girl, you should be fine.
