Fuel Filters

Classic Car MartClassic Car Mart magazine featured one of our filters in their December issue. This is what they said:


We canít resist recommending the odd unashamedly practical gift this Christmas Ė although this one is a bit of a looker, too. You see, an inline fuel filter is always a good idea for removing the risk of any dirt or rust particles in your petrol tank making their way into your classicís fuel system Ė but, letís face it, most filters are fairly ugly items.
Now though, thereís this smart chrome fuel filter available from Ratsport, capable of capturing dirt and grit as small as 40 microns. Each item is triple chrome plated and is quickly and easily dismantled without tools to clean the element inside. So much better looking than those cheap plastic affairs, donít you agree?

OUR RATING: 9 / 10
(Code: 646)
All petrol engines should be fitted with a fuel filter. Even £80 lawn mowers do these days. If your car doesn't have one then you are not preventing dirt and grit from getting into the carb, which will cause misfiring, poor running and maybe stoppage.
The dirt is everywhere, the grit tends to come from the fuel tank which rusts internally so dropping particles into the fuel - this can particularly be a problem if you run low or out of fuel and the pump is sucking the dregs from the bottom and disturbing the sediment. Slowly rusting fuel pipes don't help either.
A lot of older classics were not factory fitted with fuel filters as the technology wasn't around then. Its always sensible to fit at least one, and very easy - just cut into the fuel line, insert and clamp up.
For an ultra neat installation use a clamp, which will also stop the filter waving around and unnecessarily flexing the fuel lines.
These filters are for carb vehicles, for injected vehicles use the manufacturer's part number.
All our filters are compatible with modern ethanol-added fuels (E10-E85)
