Default how well does the oem fuel filter do its job?

im trying to find out how well a oem filter works.most aftermarket filters "filter" between 10-40 microns while being able to flow 130-150 gallons an hour.
does anyone have hard facts on what the oem filter does?once i figure this out i can complete my fuel filter re-location project.

I changed my filter when I installed my new fuel pump. It had 80K miles on it, and it was impeccable. I wouldn't worry so much, it does it's job...any think more than stock i would consider a waste of money.

i was at the opposite end.i was forced to change mine because it effected the flow that much.
this is also a question for the E85 users.ID suggests 40 micron for E85 and 10 micron for gas.what i want to find out is if the stocker filters any better than 40 microns.if not ill be able to run one filter for both fuel with no issues,in theory anyway.

No one on this forum has the information you are looking for as a fuel filter is a fuel filter is a fuel filter. Heck, things that MATTER like oil filter filtration for example. We still don't know which ones are better than others. Now you ask about a fuel filter? NO ONE knows this information. NO ONE. Just pick up whatever filter you like and use it.

If your experiencing fuel cut-off, you need to look at a fuel pump, possibly injectors.

fuel cut was never mentioned,nor implied
this FORUM how ever does have threads about the use of E85 and how it breaks down a oem filter.so it is a good idea to use a filter that uses some sort of metal media to filter the fluid used.
im deleting the intank filter and replacing it with something that is easier to service and will def flow better at high levels.

now,it was a simple question.if people dont have the answers thats fine,ill keep looking,and when i DO find what i need ill post it up to help others so they can plan out their setups better.if you cant handle that im sorry.

if you believe,as you put it "a fuel filter is a fuel filter is a fuel filter" your ignorance is shining bright.you shouldnt use "we" like your speaking for the entire forum since its only "you" that is clueless.

and NO not just any filter can be used.since im planning on using E85 im trying to create a fuel system that will be free of issues other than changing a 8$ filter media every so often.and being able to change that piece w/o pulling the entire fuel pump setup will be pretty friggin nice.

and how will different information like this ever make it to the forum if the question isnt asked?
it could be just me but id rather not mess up a set of new injectors or burn my motor up because of a plugged injector when all it could have been avoided.

welcome to america, where people who enforce certain rules don't need to follow them. I've gotten points for saying things MUCH more mild than what unabomber posted up there. - and the funny part is that unabomber wasn't even really flaming!

By the way, it's not hard to find out which filter is better than the other as long as you have the necessary tech to do proper experiment.... which, I am sure, people out there do have access to, and have done the experiment, and do know which filter is better than the next filter.

thats my point.i sure somone has done this.a steel filter media is suggested for E85 or any alternative fuel.these seem to not filter below the 40 micron area(other than golan ind. who state theirs does 10 microns)
almost every fuel filter that is designed to be installed inline after the pump filters around 35-40 microns.for E85 most have said this is fine.for regular cali 91 piss it was suggested that a 10-20 micron be used.this is harder to come by for under 100$ in a filter that has a small body and can be mounted out of the way.plus the 100+ filters take a 25$ filter element replacment.

i really thought it was a simple question.

Wow....I don't quite know what to say. OK, here goes:

If you can find me a SAE testing comparison on fuel filters, post it and I'll pay you $20 via paypal.

If you don't post back then we will all know that you have NO CONCEPT of what you are talking about.

And when you come here with a question and only provide .000345% of the information we need, you will get bad responses. You initially came here asking about fuel filter filtration data. Then I reply that there is none. Then you came back with your panties in a bunch and call me a n00b know it all because what you REALLY wanted to know is information on fuel filters vs. E85. Well I gots new for you chief. We know less about fuel filters than we do about oil filters. And the knowledge base about fuel filters with E85 is even less than that. So less minus less minus less = you not having much to go on but wild guesses which in essence does you no good.

the one thing ill give you,your consistant.consistantly as ass.thanks though.
what i did find however was a forum offered by the company im planning on getting my injectors from,there was some usefull info there.
i also have a email out to more than a few fuel injector companys asking the same questions.im sure they will have input on what i should filter down to.

so maybe my first post was hard to understand.oh well.i didnt mention E85 because that wasnt really my question was it.i wanted to know or at least find out what the oem filter could do.given what material is used to make the media for the filter would point me in the right direction.instead someone who is scared of learning something new decided to be a dick.good for you.

ill report back when i hear from the few injector manu. i emailed.until then im sure unabomber will fill this thread with more of his dickhead charm.
