I am replacing my fuel filters and with help of a previous post, I found the filters that are under the coolant reservoir.

In the parts drawing I see that there is another pair of fuel filters.
Where do I find them (2001 Diablo) ?
Where can I get these filters cheap (part number Weber-FI-02/2) ?

Cheap? LOL. There's another set just after the fuel pumps. They are located in front of the rear passenger tire you take off a panel underneath. I don't think you have to take the tire off and wheel well lining. Use the site sponsors to purchase filters.

Replacement Diablo fuel filters

I found replacement fuel filters are available from NAPA.
The photo below shows a compatable filter for the Weber-FI-02/2 is a Napa Gold 3008.

I also found the Napa 3248 compatialble for the lower pair of filters.

Here are more photos:

Fantastic. Very good detective work. They sure don't show up on any cross reference or search I did.

I agree about not always search for the cheapest but for example support the site sponsor or the local dealer. I am happy to have a dealer near to me with personnel, a building etc., which is not a fair match for the numerous webshops working from home.

Maybe a stupid question but how can these filters be renewed ? If taking them out, the petrol comes all out ? Someone knows the trick ?

The ones at the top of the tank won't leak too much when taken off, but those ones coming out of the tank are another story. Red2001, please let us know if you found a good, not too messy way to do it.

I had the lower pair of fuel filters changed at 48 000 kms in my Diablo, and then cut them open with a Dremel to see what is inside, with great danger to my fingers I may add :). I also let the fuel inside evaporate for a week before doing any cutting for obvious reasons.

The filter media consists of a very fine metal mesh, the small cuts seen in the mesh were made by me when cutting the filter housing. As can be seen in the picture, there was some sand like blackish brown crud inside the filters, the metal shavings came from cutting open the filter, I assume. The car is located in Europe, and has been on a diet of mostly German gasoline.

When I removed the lower fuel filters, I worked quickly under a bucket. I never owned a lift before, so I never had gas or oil run down past my elbow. I have since found there is a drain on the gas tank, see photo.

fuel

when I replaced my filters I drained the tank also. you will still smell like gas when done but eliminates most of the spillage on the floor.
