    Forgive my ignorance of the oil burners but Im on EPC and cant find a fuel filter for any Diesel engine (Can see all the petrol ones but no derv ones). Ive found all the pipework leading to and from the filter but cant find the feckin filter itself!!! Dont suppose they might be referred to as something else maybe?? Sorry to sound thick!

    The only thing I can find which is remotely similar is a Fuel Strainer !

    KIT, FILTER INSERT, WITH GASKETS,
    SINGLE FUEL STRAINER 90542912

    COVER, FILTER ELEMENT, WITH QUICK FITTINGS,
    SINGLE FUEL STRAINER 90542870

    I think it might be a strainer, as I had a look around Halfords and when I located the 'Filter' I whipped it out of the box and its just a replacement insert. Like a cartridge filter.

    So your not thick its just all a bit random.
