Re: Fuel Filter
It has to be pretty thick, being aluminum. It has to withstand fuel injection pressure, over 50 PSI.
People have replaced filters on vehicles that have fuel injection using similar sized filters meant for carburetor systems (3-7 PSI) and had them split open, which understandably be disastrous.
In the past here owners have replaced the tank internal filter with an external one for easier future change, and I have always warned to be sure one gets a filter specified for fuel injection, as similar sized ones are available for low pressure systems.
