About the product

The GoldenRod 496-5 Fuel Filter Element is the replacement, 17 micron paper cartidge for the GoldenRod 496 water block fuel filter. You should change your GoldenRod filter element when you notice the flow rate of your system dropping, as this indicates the fuel tank filter is getting full.

We would recommend using the GoldenRod filter wrench when changing the paper element to limit the risk of cracking of the bowl whilst trying to screw it off with force, and ensure it is screwed back on tight enough to prevent leaks. Features of the GoldenRod 496-5 Filter Element:

  • Filter element only
  • Water block filter
  • 17 micron paper cartridge
  • For GoldenRod 496 fuel filters
  • Suitable for diesel, bio up to B20, petrol

How long should a fuel filter last before I need to replace the element?

Unfortunately, there is no exact answer to this question as it all depends on the level of contamination in your fuel. The dirtier the fuel in your tank, the quicker the filter will get full. We advise that you always have a spare filter element on site so that you experience no downtime if your filter is full and blocks.

If you’re experiencing your filter elements blocking a lot quicker than usual, then this may be down to changes in the bio content of diesel. Read our article to find out more. In this case, we recommend considering fuel tank water absorber such as Aquafighter that removes both free and emulsified water directly from the fuel tank.

How can I extend the life of my filter element?

Filters need replacing when they have done their job by filtering out impurities from fuel. Therefore, the dirtier the fuel that passes through them, the quicker they will get full and need replacing. One of the tips we can give is to fit the cleanable, stainless steel GoldenRod mesh filter element.

By fitting this inline first, it is able to catch any large contaminants, leaving the paper one to filter out the smaller yet still damaging bits, therefore protecting it from having to be replaced as often.
