Performing day to day vehicle maintenance requires making the proper decisions on filters and engine oil being used.  While most filter manufacturers promote their products to meet or exceed the engine manufacturers requirements, the question that needs to be asked is: “Which requirement are the engine manufacturers following and are these filter replacements meeting the current updated requirements?”

Vehicle Maintenance for diesel engines

Example:  When Bosch, Denso or Delphi supplies a CR fuel system to an engine manufacturer they supply the engine manufacturer with the following information:

A) If you want the fuel system to be able to last trouble free for 200,000 miles under normal maintenance intervals: Use a 10 Micron filter as your final filter to the vehicle fuel system.

B) If you want the fuel system to be able to last trouble free for 300,000 miles under normal maintenance intervals: Use a 2 Micron filter as your final filter to the vehicle fuel system.

Repairing a contaminated CR fuel system on an over the road vehicle can cost $6,000.00 to $12,000.00.  Performing proper preventive maintenance on your vehicle or equipment will reduce the possibility of these devastating issues affecting your TCO.
