Dirt and even rust can enter the fuel stream at any point along the long journey from refinery to your vehicle's fuel tank. So, your fuel filter becomes the final line of defense against damaging contaminants getting into your vehicle. The majority of system failures are caused by contaminants in the fluid, so ignoring a dirty fuel filter can have serious consequences. A clogged or plugged fuel filter can eventually bring an engine to a halt. It's important to replace your dirty fuel filter with a clean Purolator fuel filter at least once a year, or every 12,000 miles. This will help your vehicle run smooth and keep your gas mileage the best it can be. Purolator has been manufacturing, marketing and distributing filters since 1923. Ernest Sweetland and George H. Greenhalgh patented the first automotive oil filtration system. They called their invention "Purolator", short for the words "pure oil later". That same year, James A. Abeles converted a Twelfth Avenue garage in New York City to manufacture the product under a new company name; Motor Improvements, Inc. It was later renamed Purolator Products, Inc. and is now known as Purolator Filters NA LLC. Purolator has introduced more than 40 "firsts" in the automotive filtration industry, and now has more than 2,000 filtration part numbers for automotive, light truck and heavy duty applications, and continues to work on product innovation and design.
