Title: ENGINE FUEL SYSTEMS
Abstract:
A fuel system, particularly a diesel fuel system for a car engine (12), includes a fuel filter (11). The filter (11) has an air outlet (18, 22) spanned by an oleophobic filter medium (26). This allows significant volumes of air to be vented while not wetting out when contacted by fuel and so allowing only very small quantites of fuel to pass the filter medium (26).
