*Not all fuel filters are serviceable. Ask your ASE Certified Service Consultant to find if your vehicle has a serviceable fuel filter.

**If you are using longer intervals for oil change, be sure to upgrade your oil filter. Perhaps the oil can reach the mileage interval, but in many cases the filter cannot, especially substandard filters.

***Recommendations vary depending on vehicle manufactures in conjunction with your driving habits.
