Premium protection for your diesel injection system
Your next tank of diesel could be lurking with Water, Microbial growth (bugs) or tiny particals that the factory filter never picks up – They can all destroy your fuel injection system! Contaminated fuel can come from a range of sources, such as:
Modern diesel engines are equipped with advanced high pressure electronically controlled injection systems which can be easily damaged and the biggest enemy of this equipment is poor quality fuel, or more frequently contaminated fuel.
Whether it be water, microbial growth (bugs) or particle matter that gets into jerry cans or service stations in remote places the cost of repairing damage caused by contamination in your fuel can be huge. A Common rail diesel engine rebuild alone can cost over $15,000. So prevention is better than cure.
One way to provide the best protection to your engine is to install an additional fuel filter and water separator. All common-rail systems only have one factory filter, so installing the additional filter included in a Diesel Care Fuel Filter Bracket Kit™ is an absolute must. The full range of D.I.Y. Kits are available to suit a wide range of diesel vehicles have been designed to give you peace of mind and save your pocket.
Safeguard your engine with an easy to install D.I.Y Fuel Filter Bracket Kit
The original kit – Developed from our team of experienced technicians with over 67 years in the industry.
Designed to efficiently remove particle matter and water from fuel – THE FUEL MANAGER Filter systems consist of a range of primary and secondary filters available in different lengths and micron levels to suit nearly every make and model diesel 4WD.
Fuel Manager options & variations are so numerous that they will meet any application but for our Diesel Care Fuel Filter Bracket Kits we have chosen to use the following:
Primary (Pre) Filter – 30 microns
Plumbed before your factory fuel filter. Rated at 30 microns and prolongs the service life of your factory filter cartridge.
Secondary (Final) Filter – 2 and 5 microns
Plumbed after your factory filter as a last line of defence the secondary filter in both 2 micron and 5 microns for V8 applications will effectively remove any water or contaminants that make it past your factory filter.
Stanadyne’s range of FUEL MANAGER Diesel fuel filters are a unique, patented, modular diesel filter/water separator system that can be customised for virtually any application up to 600HP. Their options & variations are so numerous to explain in detail for now however, the Filter elements are available in 5 different micron ratings:
The unique design efficiently traps impurities & water without impeding flow rate. The design also permits the replacement of elements without the use of tools & without spilling fuel, making service quick & easy.
Today, over 60 Original Equipment Manufacturers specify Stanadyne’s Fuel Manager Fuel filter/water separator systems for their engines &/or equipment. These include; John Deere, Caterpillar, Perkins, Sisu, Case, New Holland, Ford, Volvo, JCB, just to name a few.
What Does It Offer?
The fuel filtration and water separation needs of today’s new generation diesel fuel systems demand extremely high efficiency, flexibility, multiple functions and ease of use with no risk of fuel spills or contaminated parts. Stanadyne’s patented Fuel Manager® range of combination fuel filter/water separators meets these demanding requirements, and Fuel Manager systems have been specified as original equipment by over 60 different manufacturers, and are used on hundreds of different machines powered by diesel engines. Available for light, medium and heavy duty trucks; and agricultural, industrial, construction and marine applications, there is a Fuel Manager Series to meet any condition.
FM10 Series – up to 200HP
The FM 10 Series consists of a molded engineered plastic mounting header with a choice of different filter elements, which “twist on” using a Stanadyne patented feature. This ensures only the correct, genuine service element can be installed on the header, and assures the user that the engine is properly protected from contaminated fuel.
FM100 Series – up to 350HP
The FM 100 Series consists of a cast aluminum mounting header, with a choice of threaded ports of almost any configuration up to M16 x 1.5 ‘O’ ring in size. “Push-in” quick fit connectors can also be specified, making fuel line connections easy, quick, and less costly. The filter elements interface with the header using a patented “Key Track” system, which, like the FM 10 Series, is designed to ensure that only the correct, genuine service element can be installed on the header.
FM1000 Series – up to 600HP
The FM 1000 Series is similar to its smaller cousin, the FM 100 Series. It consists of a cast aluminum mounting header, with a choice of threaded ports up to M22 x 1.5 ‘O’ ring in size. The filter elements interface with the header using the same patented “Key Track” system as the FM 100 Series.
ENSURES CLEAN FUEL
Specially treated hydrophobic media to remove both water AND particulates. From the engineered plastic or aluminum mounting head to the rugged composite caps
and rings, the Fuel Manager’s materials are engineered to stand up in extreme operating environments. The quick-change retaining ring allows tool-free element
replacement. Stanadyne’s scientifically advanced filter media catches particles as small as two microns as well as removing water. The unique dry-change element eliminates spills during replacement.
A wide range of filter sizes to meet any application
Spill free cartridge replacement, no tools required
Diesel Care Fuel Filter Bracket Kits feature a wide range of custom made high quality stainless steel mounting brackets custom made in Australia.
This is the complete kit with everything you need to install the FuelManager filter system.
Our step by step instructions will ensure the installation is a simple task.
Incredibly easy DIY install that ANYONE CAN DO!
Yes, that’s right – anyone can install a Diesel Care Fuel Filter
Kit; our mounting kits and design are that simple.
1 –> 1.5 hours in the shed = a safer engine for ever!
Superb value for money. Full filter kits starting from just a few hundred bucks (far less than injector or engine work!)
We’re the creators of the ORIGINAL diesel fuel filter kit, that others copy.
We have the largest range of kits because we do the R&D to produced them first.
*Please note, everything is included in the kit for an easy D.I.Y. install but of course you will still need suitable assembly and dismantling tools, eg. Spanners or sockets a wrench to tighten bolts supplied, screwdriver etc. Common tools that you’ll find in your toolbox or can borrow from a mate!
Think it cant happen to you? Here are some pictures of the contaminated fuel filters in a Mitsubishi Triton.
The first picture is the factory filter, this has done approx 30.000ks and there is clear evidence of contamination – the black deposits.
The other is the Fuel Manager secondary filter, it’s done approx 20.000ks – the blackness in this filter is evidence that it is catching contaminates which could have ended up in the engine causing some costly repairs!
It also worth noting that the filter media in the Fuel Manager is Glued top and bottom, where as the factory filter is just sealing the metal faces at the top.
Your next tank of Diesel could destroy you engine. The protection of an additional fuel filter could save it.
If you are thinking about installing a fuel filter kit as well as a catch can you may be interested in the option of installing a ‘dual kit‘. At Diesel Care we have produced a range of dual kits which include both a Fuel Manager Fuel Filter and a ProVent Catch Can all in the one kit.FIND OUT MORE

As well as protecting your engine diesel fuel additives also improve diesel engine performance.
Diesel Care sells and recommends two separate additives; Stanadyne Performance Formula, & Fuel Doctor. These two additives are quite different in composition; Stanadyne’s additive being petroleum based, Fuel Doctor being detergent based.
Fuel additives are used to upgrade and stabilise fuel by reducing sludge and fuel tank contaminants. They work to clean and protect fuel system components such as the pump and injectors to achieve reduced wear on components and to restore lubricity. In addition, the cetane improver in some fuel additives such as Stanadyne Performance Formula results in easier starting, less smoke and more complete combustion. The net result is more horsepower, more torque and more km per litre. Consequently, a significant cost savings to you.
Regular use of a fuel additive will more than pay for itself by:
Poor quality fuel leads to poor performance, low efficiency and expensive repairs so used in addition to our Diesel Care filter kits a fuel additive can provide your sensitive injection system with even more protection and overall better engine performance.
