Has anyone ever tried using a universal fuel filter from the auto parts store instead of the oem? Price difference is close to $20. Is it even possible?
I did on an 88 800 I bought for my daughter. I tried 3 different ones before I gave up and put out the cash for the OEM filter. The filter mounts in such a tight hole that I couldn't get an aftermarket filter that would work. If the diameter of the connections was right the body of the filter was too large.
If you can find one that fits and has the right size connections there is no reason it won't work. If you can't fit it where it is now you might move it to a different location and replumb it.
