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.
Check out our first video adventure with Donald from when we visited the Wix Filters manufacturing facility in Gastonia, N.C., just as the company launched its NanoPro media.
