If there is one thing certain, it’s that all engines need fuel to operate. No matter how hard a person tries, it is virtually impossible to keep that fuel perfectly clean. Hence, the reason for a fuel filter. While oil filters seem to get more recognition, the fuel filter is just as important to protect your engine from harmful particles of trash that can – and will – clog your carburetor or injectors. Fitech wants to eliminate fuel filter issues and has taken a big leap to achieve that goal. Enter the Hyperfuel fuel filters.
Hyperfuel Premium Check Valve/Filter combos and replacement elements are designed to maintain consistent fuel pressure for quicker startups, and to prevent a back flow of fuel with minimum pressure drop. Although these are great for standard, mechanical-pump fuel systems, they really show their benefits when using multiple pumps. The filter housings are 5 3/4 × 1 1/2 inches, and the housings are machined from aircraft-grade billet aluminum. To get fuel into and out of the filter, female -8 AN, O-ring-equipped inlet and outlet make connection a breeze. The 100-micron stainless-steel element is even recommended for use as a prefilter in EFI systems.
This is not some cheap throw-away filter, and the Hyperfuel premium filter check-valve has replacement elements available in disposable microglass 10, 40, and 100-micron stainless steel. Static dissipating microglass and stainless-steel elements are ideal for use with all fuel types and blends (i.e. gasoline, race gas, E85, E100, M5, diesel).
If you don’t think you need the check valve in your filter, Hyperfuel also has a line of filters for you. Premium Inline Filters are available with 10, 40, or 100-micron stainless-steel reusable elements, and the housings are machined from aircraft-grade billet aluminum alloy. The Premium filters are available in either 3 1/2 × 1 1/4-inch housings with female -8 AN, O-ring inlet and outlet or 5 1/2 × 2-inch with female -12 AN, O-ring inlet and outlet.
If you’re looking to keep your fuel in check and/or filtered, you really need to checkout the Hyperfuel fuel filters from FiTech. Why take chances with an inferior filter?
