Griffin Fuel Filters / Water Separators Meet EU 4 and 5 Emission Standards9 January 2014
Fuel injectors can cause a whole host of problems that can lead to major engine damage if not diagnosed and replaced or repaired as soon as possible. To diagnose a fuel injector problem you need a keen sense of your vehicle, a little time, some basic fuel injector knowledge and a good fuel filter to protect your fuel injector. If you use diesel engine, you should choose a Fuel Filter/Water Separator. You should not use the normal fuel filter.
For meeting the EU 4 and 5 emission standards, there are very few brands in the market. Griffin Fuel Filter/Water Separator is one of these few brands. Look at this Spin-On series Griffin GP341 with 10 micron size element and AC pump head. It is mainly used for Mercedes Benz, Man, Hino and Nissan trucks.
