Tdi fuel filter?

Which Land Rover diesel engine does this fuel filter belong to?

I'd say it's not a filter, but a sedimenter. Looks very similar to my 300Tdi, but I have not seen one on a 200Tdi so I don't know the difference.

Maybe.

It depends if I need it or not. It was in the 300 Tdi conversion parts crate I got from Britannica Restorations Ltd.

You don't "need" one but if you fit one make sure you clean it regularly as it's amazing how much jelly (bacteria + water) it collects. I noticed problems with fuel delivery at about 7500km that required the first cleaning. In the future it will be cleaned well every 5000km at the oil change.

So, yes you don't need one, but they do remove a lot and that.means your particulate filter will last longer which is why I added one. I am considering adding a rotofilter to the oil system for the same reason.

Really, I've never found anything in mine.

Where are you buying fuel?

All over, I suspect it may have gotten wet from a Jerry can filling but still, an added layer of protection is not a bad thing when it comes to the cost of ve pump and injectors.

Hi Chris as has been said its a sedementor fitted as standard to 2 & 300tdi on discos and export 90 /110 it was also an option on other vehicles.

if you have one fit it.

water in the fuel is common due to the poor design of the filler on 90/110 which allows water to enter when filling in the rain,it also traps grit and rust flakes and other crap introduced via cans etc.

give it a good clean and buy a rebuild kit for it (a few seals & replacement plastic drain tap) as the drain tap often snaps if it has been neglected as they are tucked out of the way on a disco and often missed.

regards
all
