Not all fuel filters are made equal. This statement rings all the truer when you compare Racor fuel filters with the others currently on the market. Racor fuel filters are undoubtedly leading the way when it comes to being the preferred fuel filters, and for many great reasons.
You’d be mistaken for thinking that Racor, which is a division of Parker Hannifin, only produces high-quality, innovative fuel filters for motor vehicles. Their motor vehicle division is only a small section of a much larger production line. But it is the other fuel filters, those manufactured for marine and aero applications that helped to pave the way for the creation of filters for motor vehicles such as 4 x 4’s.
Today, there are few off-road enthusiasts who don’t use Racor as their preferred filter. At Turboformance, we not only supply and install these fantastic filters, but we also provide expert advice for those looking to increase the performance of their 4 x 4 vehicles.
The Benefits of Fuel Filtering
Ensuring your fuel is exceptionally clean, and as a result, ensuring that you are getting the very best performance out of your vehicle, a top quality fuel filter is a must. All cars, regardless of whether they are city cars or off-road vehicles, have fuel filters. But there is a distinct line between your everyday fuel filters, and a top quality filter, such as Racor fuel filters.
If you are not completely sure about the various advantages of having a quality fuel filter, here is a list of the benefits you can enjoy when you have the right type of filter.
- Increased engine performance
This is the number one benefit of replacing your fuel filter. In order to keep your engine performing optimally, you need to make sure that the fuel entering the system is always clean and able to aid the efficiency of your vehicle. For a normal vehicle, the city kind, for instance, a fuel filter will be replaced once a year during the annual service. Modern cars can’t always get the quick DIY replacement, as the fuel injection systems are generally quite complicated.
- Keeping injectors working
One of the biggest functions of fuel filters is to prevent contaminants and other particles from clogging up the injectors. Even the slightest bit of damage or rust can damage the fuel injectors beyond repair and result in a costly replacement. It will be cheaper to replace the filter than to replace the fuel injector.
- Enough Power
The engine will work better, produce more power and have a longer lifespan if it is kept free of contaminants. A clean filter, along with clean fuel, is guaranteed to keep the engine working as it should so your vehicle will have more than enough power to keep it going, especially when you are off-roading.
