With fueling sites offering many different formulations of fuel, operators must be aware of the various types of dispenser filters that are available, along with their specific uses.

For example, the following types of dispenser filters are available to the retail-fueling market:

Standard for dirt removal in standard fuels and under normal fueling operations

Microglass for filtering of fuels that have very fine particulates

Hydrosorb® for use with fuels where high water tables require heavy-duty water absorption

Alcohol/Alert filters that have been designed to detect phase separation in ethanol fuels

Additionally, it is recommended that a 10-micron filter be used for typical fuels, with a 30-micron filter used with diesel.
