The Brigg’s and Stratton fuel filters are produced by the Phillips Corporation. The company produces both synthetic oil and standard oil. The company has been in business since 1963 and is based in Michigan. To date, the company continues to be a leader in the industry with many satisfied customers. The company offers replacement filter cartridges for all their products as well as a full money back guarantee for their products.
According to the Phillips Corporation website, ” Phillips manufactures high quality fuels that meet or exceed the requirements set forth by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). All pumps manufactured by the company meet these requirements. The company also recycles the used oil it produces so that it can be used again.” So, what is the average current price for used briggs and stratton fuel filter direction valves? According to the company website, “The current average current price for used briggs and stratton fuel filter direction valves is $5.00 per gallon. The cost may vary depending on the current supply and demand for that particular unit.”
From the last 200 listings. The price for used Brigg’s and Stratton fuel filters ranges from as low as ten cents per gallon up to over two dollars per gallon. Some of the more common models that are being sold include, the 12 volt diesel engines, diesel in-line engines, gasoline engines, diesel engines and high pressure gas engines. These are just a few of the engines and models available.
Now let’s take a closer look at what is being quoted. The sentence, ” Phillips manufactures high quality fuels that meet or exceed the requirements set forth by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). All pumps manufactured by the company meet these requirements. The company also recycles the used oil it produces so that it can be used again.” This is a pretty clear statement and there is nothing that I can find in the fine print that could make it a little more difficult to understand.
Now let’s take a look at another part of the same sentence, ” Phillips sells its products through distributors that use good-standing conduction and packaging methods that comply with all Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.” Again we have a statement that is clear on what the product is but has a problem of committing to what those standards actually are. In other words, the sentence says, ” Phillips sells its products through distributors who use good-standing conduction and packaging methods that comply with all Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.”
Unfortunately for the consumer, the precise meaning of the last sentence isn’t quite what the company wants you to believe. The last sentence in the above description is, “For purposes of fuel economy and carburetor efficiency, our products provide comparable or better gas mileage than competitive brands.” What is meant by comparable and better gas mileage? That depends on the application, but in general, the better your carburetor performance the better your air filter performance.
Now, having said this, a company by the name of American Racing Pro Services, Inc., does sell its Pro Runner brand of carburetors and fuel filters using the brand name American Racing Pro. So let’s assume that the last sentence mentioned above is not an error. In other words, the above explanation stands up to any close scrutiny.
If there was a single flaw, it would be a minor point, as most of the defects noted above are relatively minor and easy to remedy. But, as I pointed out in my first article, this whole story goes beyond the scope of this article. This is just a small sampling of the “hits” and reviews cited to show that “engine tuning” may not be all it is cracked up to be. But, don’t we all have to make some sacrifices to remain within the guidelines of our vehicles’ engineering?
