Four wheel drive diesel vehicles are the transport of choice for today’s tradie, business owner, tourer, parent and the weekend warrior. They provide safety, versatility and practicability not found in anything else. From on the job site to dropping the kids off at school to getting a load of firewood on the weekend, it’s the humble ute which is the vehicle of choice. It’s not surprising then, that three of the top 10 cars sold in Australia in 2016 were common rail diesel 4WD’s.
Like anything that you want to last the distance however, proper maintenance is key to the longevity and reliability. Filtermax have been in the industry for more than two decades – we know exactly what your engine needs for heavy-duty protection.

There are many factors to consider when maintaining the performance of your 4WD. Reading the owner’s manual is a good way to be informed on what you need to do. There are different systems in a 4WD that need regular maintenance. Brakes, exhaust, emission and engine cooling are some systems that need to be regulated. Don’t forget that lighting, wipers, wheels and transmission should also be regularly checked.
To help you sustain your 4WD’s superior condition, Diesel Dog offers fuel filter kits that enhance your 4WD’s fuel filtration system. Improving a fuel filtration system can positively affect the other systems and parts of a vehicle.
Your 4WD’s fuel system functions with the engine control system to deliver the lowest possible emissions. If ever you notice that your exhaust is emitting white smoke, your fuel system may be burning oil instead of fuel. This may be due to an oil contamination in your fuel system.
One way to avoid this is to improve the efficiency of the 4WD’s primary fuel filtration system by installing a secondary fuel filter. The secondary fuel filter makes fuel undergo a final filtering process that eliminates water and other contaminants that remain from the primary filtration process.
Filters and Fluids
Other than the fuel filter, you will have to check the other filtration systems to ensure maximum vehicle performance. Your 4WD’s filters are crucial to the longevity of your 4WD and your comfort. Air filters can trap dirt particles to avoid damage to the engine’s cylinders, walls and pistons. Cabin filters trap bacteria and dust that harm a 4WD’s ventilation system.
Diesel Dog provides service kits that contain air, fuel and oil filters that provide the highest level of protection allowing you to maintain your 4WD's optimal performance. If you have questions about our products, call 1800 672 844.

Your fuel filter protects your engine by removing contaminants that may damage your fuel injector system. It is one of the components that keeps your car running smoothly and efficiently so that you can keep driving with no issues.
Your car engine will come with a factory fuel filter, but we recommend that you install a secondary fuel filter to add a new layer of protection to your engine. Our diesel fuel filter kits are easy to install, and we have a variety of filters that are compatible with different types of 4WD vehicles.
A final fuel filter can help reduce maintenance costs and greatly reduces the chance of contaminants or water reaching your engine and injectors. However, even with a second fuel filter in place, you will still need to change both fuel filters at regular intervals. We recommend that you change your final filter when you change our factory filter.

Diesel Dog is a leading supplier of filters for 4WD vehicles. We offer our premium products to four-wheel drive enthusiasts and anyone looking to improve the filtration protection of their vehicles. Diesel Dog’s fuel filter and service kit products are made for the current generation of four-wheel drive and light commercial vehicles, fitted with common rail fuel injection systems.
These systems function at tremendously high pressure and very close tolerances. However, modern fuel systems alone do not offer optimised protection and water stripping ability. The addition of a final fuel filter can further protect your fuel system and ensure the fuel quality required.
