The fuel system on the Mitsubishi Pajero EXE includes a fuel filter that is responsible for keeping the diesel clean. The diesel flows into the fuel filter from the fuel tank. Once the diesel enters into the fuel filter, it flows through the fibered filter inside of the fuel filter housing. The fibered filter then catches and holds any impurities from the diesel. Mitsubishi recommends changing the fuel filter on the Pajero EXE every 40,000 miles.
