    Default Fuel filter replacement

    Dear All,
    Can you please tell me if I should go for genuine fuel filter for my vitz (2010 model) or if there are alternates available having comparable quality but lower price?
    Further, can you please give me the idea of the price comparison?

    As per my understanding, there are two kind of fuel filters.
    One is installed in the fuel tank.
    And other we install manually in the engine room by cutting the incoming fuel pipes and install fuel filter there.

    Incase you want to change which is in Fuel tank, then don’t go for alternatives. Just stick to OEM. Though expensive but peace of mind is there.
    And if you want to install it in engine room, then these fuel filters are available like Rs. 250 only and easy to install/replace. Hardly takes 5 min.

    And for future try to top up immediately when fuel level comes till 1/4.

    thanks, yes I was talking about the one in the fuel tank.
    To my observation Toyota dealers sell the parts at rather higher parts, so I was wondering if there are alternatives in Lahore?

    I would rather you use Toyota genuine filters they give a person a lot of peace of mind, and since they even give you a receipt at the end of the service. If you ever had any problems due to the filter you can just go to the workshop show them the recipt and they would fix the problem for you free of charge, thats my experience with them. If you want your fluids changed outside only have your radiator fluid and motoroil changed outside I had my transmission fluid changed from a shell pump and nearly wrect the CVT transmission of the car had to then go and had the entire transmission flushed and filled with Toyota CVT oil cost me 6500/- but no problems ever since.
