What are the application differences between petrol and diesel fuel filters?

For cars with an electronic fuel injection system, the petrol filter must withstand pressures of 6 bar and have a higher filtration threshold between 2 and 5 microns.
- The diesel fuel filters in addition to eliminating the impurities present in the diesel must ensure the separation of any quantities of water increasingly present with the use of diesel fuel with the presence of biodiesel.
