Fuel System Components
- Fuel Tank: Stores fuel. Internal baffles prevent sloshing during stops and starts.
- Fuel Pump: Draws the fuel from the tank and propels it through fuel lines.
- Fuel Lines: Steel lines and flexible hoses carry the fuel from the tank to the engine.
- Fuel Filter: The fuel filter is important for keeping your fuel system functioning at its best. A clean fuel filter means better gas mileage. (Change every 20,000 miles or once a year.)
