The combination of the clear cover on top, the EleMax filter cartridge and the Statapore filter media ensures better water separation, longer filter life and provides instant visual diagnostics of fuel quality to protect engine system components.

Extended Filter Life

Change the filter only when the fuel reaches the black band on the filter wrap. As the fuel rises inside the filter cover, the vapor pressure relief valve on the cap equalizes pressure and allows more of the filter media to be used.

The color of the fuel and the filter media is not an indication of when to change the filter as there is still unused media under the filter wrap.

Fuel Heating

With multiple fuel heating options, the Fuel Pro 482 will keep you on the road in the harshest winter conditions. Electric pre-heaters warm the fuel once the ignition key is turned. Overnight heaters can be used to keep the fuel inside the Fuel Pro warm when the temperatures drop.
