As you can see from the photos the factory Primary is quite clean and the finer secondary is 75% contaminated. If you were solely relying on the factory filter, there is an awful lot of junk that would have travelled through the pump & injectors. Cheap piece of mind considering the refurbishment costs of CRD parts.

    And that is exactly why I have a secondary......Not really in MM,s best interest to have perfectly clean fuel going into a motor.....At $5,000 a pump they,d lose a lot of money..cynical...only from experience.

    Having lots of friends on facebook is the same as having lots of money in monopoly...both meaningless.

        It may be worthwhile to ask supplier for an efficiency rating for filter and also flow rate.

        Without an efficiency rating to state a particle size is meaningless.

        The Donaldson 3 micron kit is rated at 99% efficient and 114 LPH flow rate.

        Data on efficiency rating and flow rate should help in making an informed decision.


        Please note I have no association with Donaldson. I just like their products

            Finding a primary fuel filter, where I live, is quite complicated, 13000kms from Australia, 10000 from France, and not many people with this kind of spare part here.

            10kms from my home, there is a marine shop, and it has this filter there with water decanter .

            Finding Donaldson is mission impossible (apart from ordering in Australia 3 weeks delay), luckily I saw this store, and it is the only one he has

              I could therefore use it first, and keep the OEM filter second (10microns) .
              It can do the trick rather than having nothing, what do you think?

                I now understand better why my scv valve was often dirty, and my fuel filter also clogged quickly , and i had like fuel cut sometimes which was quite unpleasant when driving

                I have an LHD, and I thought to install the filter in this corner there
