A fuel filter is a filter in the fuel line that screens out dirt and rust particles from the fuel. Fuel filters serve a vital function in today's modern, tight-tolerance engine fuel systems. Fuel filters also improve performance, as the fewer the number of contaminants present in the fuel, the more efficiently it can be burnt.
MAHLE fuel filters—we take care of any dirt left over
MAHLE fuel filters reliably remove contaminants. Thanks to high-quality filter media, the fuel system is protected from the smallest contaminants and therefore from corrosion damage. This protects the engine and assures efficient operation of the vehicle. The required constant fuel supply is achieved with pressure regulation and recirculation of the surplus fuel from the injection pump to the tank.
Pulsation damping compensates for the pressure fluctuations caused by the fuel pump. Our fuel filters comply with the correspondingly high safety standards of the automobile manufacturers and ensure secure sealing even in the event of accidents.
However, an important consideration for optimum functioning of fuel filters is that filters are replaced within the maintenance intervals stipulated by the automobile manufacturers.
