42 Drive in clean air
We’re an impatient bunch you know. You often see 4WD folk in the bush in a hurry and driving way too close to the vehicle in front. Apart from the risk of stone damage to windscreens, not being able to stop in time in an emergency and the chance of pulling out to overtake with compromised visibility, what about your poor old air filter? Modern turbo-diesels need clean fuel and clean air to work at their peak. A clogged up air filter can literally kill an expensive motor, dusting turbo and cylinder bores fairly rapidly if left un-serviced. Get into the habit of giving it a tap at every fuel stop in dusty conditions, blowing it out with compressed air is even better. ARB sells the Safari snorkel range, a great product that raises the air intake point in the quest for clean air. Coupled up to a pre-cleaner pod you’ll have noticeably cleaner air filters in dirty conditions.
