200/200A Series Filters Will Be Discontinued As Of 10/1/21
I don’t know if we are just getting more notifications these days or it has just been a year where the manufacturers are in a self-reflective mode with their products’ performances and it is an opportunity to slim down during trying times to trim down on raw materials and what they deem as wasted effort but consolidation is a continual process across a broad line of products that do relatively the same thing but to varying degrees and it’s not necessarily a bad thing in all instances.
So the short and sweet of it is the following CimTek filters will no longer be offered as of *October 1, 2021:
*Includes biodiesel blends up to 20% and 100% biodiesel. We only show best defense options because the distinct properties of biodiesel require the specific filters listed. Please contact us with questions or to learn more.

How Much Could Your Cellulose Filter Actually Cost You?
Cellulose filters may be cheaper than our other filters, but it’s important to understand what that lower price tag means.
Cellulose filters provide no protection from water, which continues to reign as the largest threat to your fuel supply. When you choose Cellulose, you’re vulnerable to the many issues caused by water-contaminated fuel, including:
Equipment Damage Excess water in your fuel can cause microbial growth, rust, etching, and corrosion—all of which can severely damage your equipment over time.
Downtime Damaged equipment, fuel violations, and service calls all lead to pump downtime, which directly impacts your profitability.
Lost Customers Customers who receive water-contaminated fuel are not going to be happy customers. Unhappy customers don’t come back. And in a world where those unhappy customers can share their bad experience with thousands of people with the click of a button, it’s more important than ever to guard against bad fuel.
Vehicle Damage Water-contaminated fuel can cause serious issues in customers’ vehicles, resulting in repair bills they don’t want to pay and frustration they won’t soon forget.
Violations & Fines In most states, customers who suspect they’ve received contaminated fuel can file a complaint with their local Weights & Measures department. If that department determines there is water in your fuel, you can quickly find yourself bagging pumps, paying associated fines, and facing expensive service bills to fix the issue.
