Benefits of Fuel Filter Maintenance for Medium-Duty Fleets in BC

May 25,2022

An effective and efficient fuel filtration system is essential for BC commercial fleets to maintain engine performance and longevity.

Here are three benefits of regular fuel filter maintenance from our medium-duty truck experts at Skaha Ford:

1. Avoids Engine Clogs 

Fuel filters screen out pollutants and contaminants that accumulate in diesel fuel during storage and transportation. Over time, these filters reach capacity, allowing more particles to make their way into the engine throughout the fuel system. When water in diesel fuel mixes with these materials, it forms a sludge that can clog fuel injectors and carburetors, resulting in a lack of engine power and responsiveness. However, regular filter changes will ensure ongoing particle separation and superior performance.

2. Prevents Corrosion 

Moisture in diesel fuel can also lead to severe corrosion. Small particulates collected by the fuel filter are abrasive and can create extra wear and tear when combined with water and fuel acids. Without a new filter, this erosion worsens and drives up repair costs.

3. Minimizes Moisture 

Water in diesel is unavoidable, but using a fuel filter with a fuel and water separator reduces how much condensation gets into the system. This promotes greater fuel injection, reduced engine overheating and increased uptime.
