The first area that I see with filter quality, is the weight of the container the filter is built into. Some are solid, others are damn near the weight of a beer can you could crush on your head. A heavey weight, means a quality machining, thius a qualtiy fit of the parts internally and a quality fit externally to your engine. I have seen on poor filters, poor threads and internal bypasses that are made out of the same grade of metal the cannister is made from. Thus a chance it may operate poorly. Filter paper quality is probably the biggest aspect. Some papers are better than others.


For God so loved the world..........He didn't send a committee.

I had a new universal fuel filter that was bad, it was in a box and sealed, it would not pass fuel , and yes I took all packing of before installing it.. crossed the part number to a napa fuel filter it worked ok, I never heard of getting a bad filter, but I guess anything is possible, THat took a bit of trouble shooting
