If you can change your vehicles oil, you can change your vehicles coalescent filter. No special tools, all you need is a medium sized Crescent Wrench and a set of hex key wrenches
These are the filters made by the Finite division of Parker Hannifin. This is the identical OEM filter sold at Chevy, Ford, Honda and Toyota dealerships. Ford typically charges $48.00 or more for this same filter without the warranty, changing instructions, or extra drain plug o-rings. The o-rings are made from Buna-N and are the correct durometer (hardness) for CNG applications. I am an authorized Parker Hannifin distributor. I offer discount dealer pricing for box quantities of 10 filters or more. Email me for details.

The recommended filter change interval is every15K miles, or whenever the filter becomes clogged or contaminated. Even if the filter looks clean, there are still particles trapped in the element that reduces the CFM pass through.
WHAT IS A COALESCENT FILTER?
WHY DOES THIS MATTER?
The most common drivability problems I see again and again in natural gas vehicles results from failing to maintain the vehicles coalescent filter. Oil levels in excess of 10 to 80 PPM, parts per million is considered excessive carryover oil. Excessive oil fills the vehicles fuel tanks, reducing the fuel carrying capacity. Oil builds up in the coalescent filter housing, where if not drained regularly, is drawn through the filter into the regulator and into compuvalve (if it’s a Ford bi-fuel) and then into the injectors. The higher temperatures generated by the engine cause the carry over oil to varnish and or solidify. This solidified oil is what plugs up the compuvalve, fuel injectors, pressure sensors, and eventually the catalytic converter. This is a problem unique to CNG vehicles because unlike unleaded gasoline, CNG does not contain detergents.
The coalescent filter protects your investment and prevents the following problems that are most commonly caused by excessive carry over oil.
· Rough Idle, Dying
· Hard Start
· Plugged Catalytic Converter
· Loss of Power at Heavy Load
· DTC Codes For Lean Fuel
· No Start
Most dealers recommend changing the filter every 15K miles under normal operating conditions and every 5K – 10K miles under sever operating conditions
The quality and cleanliness of the CNG at your local refueling station determines whether your vehicle is operating under “normal” or “severe” conditions. Testing the cleanliness of CNG before refueling is unrealistic. There is no way to know if your fuel stations compressors are operating correctly. The best way to prolong the life of your filter and protect your vehicles CNG system from excessive carryover oil is to adopt a coalescent filter inspection and maintenance schedule.
Some evidence of excessive oil after fueling includes visible oil on the vehicles male fill nozzle. Oil foaming out of the fill hole of the vehicles male fill nozzle. If you see evidence of excessive carry over oil, or if there is more than a teaspoon of oil in your lower filter housing, you should depressurize the CNG fuel system and remove the drain plug to check for oil every 2500 to 5000 miles. I include the extra drain plug o-rings so that the drain plug can be removed multiple times to drain excess oil between filter changes.
