    Default This had me stumped..........

    Just changed the fuel filter on my old 1.2 petrol Corsa, and when I took the rubber "jacket" off the old one, the direction arrow was pointing in the wrong direction!!! how could the fuel filter work the wrong way round?????????
    Plus it looked as though it had been on there for years and years, yet there was no dirty petrol coming out of it, or muck or anything?

    Perhaps the filter did work "the wrong way round" and the reason for no dirty fuel coming out was that it was contained in the filter??.

    Maybe there wasn't any significant crap got in for it to filter so it didn't matter whether or not it was the right or wrong way round?

    must have got half a pint of petrol out of the filter, all nice and clean. I know other people who have changed them have said they had loads of crud coming out of theirs?
    if it would work the wrong way round, why put an arrow on it to indicate flow?
