The latest model of the Mini has a fuel injection system for the engine. In the Mini as well as in any modern FI car the quality of the fuel is very critical. In order to maintain this very high quality a fuel filter is MANDATORY! Should be replaced every 15-20,000 Miles
From the introduction of fuel injection systems in 1992, a fuel filter was mounted on the rear subframe. These should be replaced every 2 years or 24,000 miles, whichever is the sooner.
GFE7059 covers all SPI models and MPI up to chassis number 169573 and has 20mm end outlet nuts. From chassis number 169574 use part number GFE7057.
This filter uses an adaptor union on the inlet pipe.
See GFE7059 for SPi and MPi up to VIN WD169573.
