Toyota Genuine Parts - Fuel Filters
The longevity of your engine, and smooth performance of your vehicle relies on a clean flow of fuel. It is the role of the Fuel Filter to capture any impurities which may travel from the petrol pump and into your fuel tank.
Toyota Genuine Fuel Filters are designed specifically for each Toyota model, to fit fuel lines precisely and therefore trap the tiniest of impurities. Unlike some non-genuine fuel filters, Toyota Genuine Fuel Filters are constructed of high quality resin plastic which is both airtight and highly heat resistant - an important feature when you're talking petrol in the hot environment of an engine bay!
For smoother engine operation
Fuel is the lifeblood of your engine. Therefore, it is vital that it is totally free of any contaminants before it enters the workings of your engine. It is the role of the Fuel Filter to trap any foreign matter and provide a clean flow of fuel for smooth performance and engine longevity. However, for such a small part, there are very big differences in the quality of Fuel Filters.
TOYOTA GENUINE FUEL FILTERS TRAP THE TINIEST PARTICLES - THOROUGH FILTERING PROCESS ENSURES CLEAN FUEL AND SMOOTH ENGINE OPERATION.
The quality of a Fuel Filter can be best gauged by its ability to trap even the tiniest impurities. Toyota Genuine Fuel Filters are engineered to catch particles as small as ten microns, yet still maintain a smooth flow of fuel. Lesser quality filters use poorly constructed filter papers which allow larger impurities to clog and corrode the engine, causing engine malfunction.
How to avoid the danger of a fuel leak
Only Toyota Genuine Fuel Filters are designed specifically for each individual model Toyota. They are constructed of high quality resin plastic which is both airtight and highly heat resistant. And most importantly, they are designed to fit fuel lines precisely. Other non-genuine filters may need to be 'forced' onto fuel lines, which can cause fuel leakages and increase the chances of creating a fire hazard.
When to replace your fuel filter
Toyota Genuine Fuel Filters are made of semi-transparent plastic so you can judge their condition just by looking at them. If the interior filter paper is black and grimy, then it is time to replace it. If you have your vehicle serviced at NASSCO Limited, then the Fuel Filter will be replaced as necessary. A qualified Toyota Technician will check your Fuel Filter during a scheduled Full Service and will replace the filter only if it needs to be changed. This saves you money as a good filter is not replaced simply because the vehicle is at a certain mileage.
