obp Motorsport Fuel Filter Help and Advice
Fuel filters are rated in microns. A micron is a unit of measurement, equivalent to .000039 inches. (39 Millionths of an inch.) Put this into perspective, a human hair is about 100 microns in diameter.
Anything less than about 30-40 microns can no longer be seen with the naked eye. A '10 micron' filter will block contaminants larger than 10 microns, and let those smaller than 10 microns pass.
The filter before your pump serves mainly to protect the fuel pump. Depending on the pump, usually a 30-100 Micron filter is used here. The filter after the pump serves to protect the injectors and needs to be much finer.
A 10 micron filter is generally sufficient for fuel rail filtration. Stay away from small diameter fuel filters, the least bit of contamination and they're clogged enough to be a major restriction in the system.
The obp Fuel Filter Canister & Filter has a large surface area for the filter to work to maximum efficiency with minimum reduction in fuel flow. The correct sized fuel filter canister system will require less cleaning or replacement filters than the smaller inefficient type of fuel filters.
