Where you’re going to see truck filter service issues first

Filtration is key to not only keeping your equipment running productively, but efficiently as well. A truck with a clogged fuel filter will both be hard to start and will increase its fuel usage, gobbling up the hard-earned MPG you spec’d toward.

Donald Chilton, director of product management at Mann+Hummel Group, provider of Wix Filters, walked me through the top truck filtration maintenance bullet points and talked through the difficulty of balancing the short- and long-term aspects of filtration service intervals. Watch the video above for the insight.
