Default Where are people buying fuel filters from? 2001 sl2.

So all my searches come up empty for finding fuel filters. The wix or napa ones are unavailable/sold out all places ive searched. Also no luck finding oem. Not much offered on rockauto, they list two but not brands ive seen recommended to use. Ive read the gk industries gf1846 works and I have found those on ebay for a pretty reasonable price. Been reported they provide right about the same fuel pressure as the others. Car has 211k miles and no clue when it was last done if ever. One of the last things on the list of basic maintance.

Looks like the current filter is an oem unit based on the numbers on the side. 21008019. And it doesn't look terribly old but I dont think they tend to rust like the rest of the underside does so hard to tell how old it is.

I have one I bought years ago and haven’t put it on yet.
I don’t know what brand it is.

The car is a model year 1998 DOHC.

Stamped, in ink (or is it laser dot matrix?) on metal is,
533731 USA E.-U. LOS EE.UU.
061815BF2 ->

Printed, on a foil label,
25220
21008019
1884B 103608

Stamped, in ink, on one end,
7440 (the bottom half of the 7 is off the edge of the can, but I looks like a 7)
7440 is also stamped, in ink, on the side of the can.

Could possibly be the wix fuel filter. Usually they come up as 33731 but ive seen it as 533731 as well. Is it something you'd consider selling or just throwing some part numbers out there? Would you happen to have a picture of it?

Not selling. I was just posting some numbers, hoping it would help you find some for yourself.
My car is approaching 250k and the fuel filter was only replaced once, 12 years ago.

These days, buy whatever filter you can get and then monitor the fuel pressure until you’re sure it works.

If anyone has any E 1 5 problems, be sure to let Saturn fans know.
I am assuming that any failing elastomers will not cause a fire.

Not to be a contrarian, but my SmartFill gas can failed because the rubber seals swelled-up. I thought it was a great idea, but it only worked for ~6 months until the mechanism froze.

Same, except mine was Purolator branded, but has the right part number for the S10 flex fuel filter F65501. I still have an OEM one on my SL2 that I replaced at 105k, 210k now, no issues with the OEM so the Purolator is sitting as reserve until needed.

1998 SL1
Default Re: Where are people buying fuel filters from? 2001 sl2.

I have either Hastings or Purolater installed on my 98 SL1.
Starts quick and summertime fuel mileage is between 35 and 37.
I have a pressure gauge but fittings are for Bosch CIS and I need some adapters of some sort. I purchased both filters awhile back when Wix was getting hard to find. The Hastings was purchased from Ebay was listed as a Wix but actually was a Hastings.
