What Do Diesel Fuel Filters Do?

The most important part of caring for any Diesel engine is keeping it free of water and contaminants. Since they don’t actually use a spark plug to ignite in the combustion chamber, anything that gets into the fuel and prevents the fuel from combusting under pressure is disastrous. Diesel fuel filters help to separate your fuel and water (as well as filtering out any other contaminants) before it gets to your fuel pump. This is particularly important to have when driving in rural areas and when running large 4×4’s.
