Icon5 '00 'lude Fuel Filters - which is best?

Hey, everyone.

I'm eventually going to do a tune-up on my '00 'lude, and someone suggested that I also replace the fuel filter. Did a quick search via Google and ran across this page of fuel filters. Which do you guys think is the best?

Tnx,

^_^

You don't think that any of the secondary market makes one that's as good as the original?

Is Wix reputable? What about Bosch?

Re: '00 'lude Fuel Filters - which is best?

Don't think because it says performance it makes a difference just stick to OEM. Anything else is just a joke! Unless your running a High octane fuel on your ride all the time adding a performance fuel filter is just tossing your money in the trash. but if you want i'll buy an OEM filter and add a HKS, MUGEN, or any other brand name sticker on it and take that extra money since you won't feel a difference either way.

Like i always tell my customers when it comes to fuel filter the house brand is about as good as the name brand your just paying big bucks for the brand slapping their logo on it for you.

As long as it's a new filter it doesn't matter....It's just fuking toilet paper inside a metal shell.

Re: '00 'lude Fuel Filters - which is best?

Ditto, do a search and buy a product from a reputable manufacturer. It is just a filter. The one installed in your car now is probably original so your car will benefit. Best regards and have fun changing it!

I knew I forgot something! Instructions! Anyone know of any links to instructions for changing the fuel filter?

Tnx,

Re: '00 'lude Fuel Filters - which is best?

Going OEM with stuff like this is always the best imo.

Re: '00 'lude Fuel Filters - which is best?

I got a WIX as well for mine. It's far better than a Fram or some other house brand junk, and no, WIX is the same as Purolator so it's a damn good filter. They're about equivalent to OEM, there isn't much difference between them. It's your choice. You can go cheap with a house brand or Fram/STP, go good with a WIX, Purolator, or an OEM Honda filter.

The Mayle or Wix are good choices if you don't go oem. You might need some crows feet to remove the FF nut.

Re: '00 'lude Fuel Filters - which is best?

According to the HELMS, the OE fuel filter should never need to be replaced. You only need to change it if the fuel pressure drops below a certain PSI.
