Fuel filters clean the dirt, dust and grime out of your fuel. Both gasoline and diesel-powered engines have them. The fuel filter is located in the fuel line between the fuel tank and the engine.
You don’t need to filter your fuel because it has lots of grit in it; you need to filter it because it has some grit it’s in. Any dirt or bits of grime are bad for your engine. The cleaner the fuel, the better an engine will run.
Over time, the small amounts of rust, dirt and contaminants in your fuel settle out inside the fuel tank. After about five years, this can amount to a quite a bit of sediment. This means that as your car ages, your fuel filter has to work harder to screen your fuel: more sediment in your tank means more grit in your fuel.
