It’s easy to think that fuel contamination is something that happens “in the bush” but this is simply not true! Did you know that 72% of all diesel fuel injection system failures are caused by water and fuel lubricity problems? Direction Plus™ Fuel Manager Pre-Filter Kits protect late model common rail diesel engines against costly injector failure.

Installing a Direction Plus™ Fuel Manager Pre-filter kit between the fuel tank and the O.E.M fuel filter will remove the majority of water and particle contamination. This leaves the O.E.M fuel filter to do the final and finer filtration. This ensures you are maximising the protection of your diesel fuel system.

Burnside Motors work closely with some of the Sunshine Coast top diesel performance specialists such as Power Curve Performance.  It is believed a pre diesel filter also is best for the performance of your vehicle.  While protecting the fuel system from contaminants the pre-filter does not interfere with the fuel delivered to the diesel injectors.  Diesel injectors and common-rail fuel systems are prone to contamination and are extremely intricate systems.  It is the understanding that the pre filter allows the standard factory filter to continue to do its job as designed.  

For the ultimate front line defence against water and particle contamination, investing in a DirectionPlus™ Fuel Manager Pre-Filter Kit will protect your investment 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
