In 2017, the fuel filter sealer in your truck’s fuel tank is the only piece of the puzzle that you need to replace, according to Ford.
The sealer is made from an extremely tough compound called PETN, which is made of a metal oxide that absorbs and seals oxygen, preventing it from getting into the fuel tank.
To be more specific, the PETN is made up of two components: a silicon carbide, and a titanium oxide that’s designed to be a bit thicker than normal PETN and is also made from a metal.
When PETN gets into a fuel tank, it creates a pressure wave that pushes out oxygen and breaks the PETNs structure.
The more pressure the pressure wave pushes out of the PET nanotubes, the more energy they release, causing the fuel to boil.
The PETNs carbon nanotube structures are then replaced with stainless steel or aluminum, making them tougher than PETN.
The only problem with using PETN on your fuel tank sealers is that it takes some time to get them installed.
For that reason, it’s worth it to replace your PETN with a stainless steel one.
