I have read a few ISO standards for performing the so-called 'burst pressure' test in which a filter or an element of one is tested to failure. I am curious whether such a failure can occur under normal fuel line pressures (e.g. after filter clogging). To break down:
- What is a typical fuel line pressure?
- Can a blocked/clogged filter 'burst' under such pressure?
- If not, what is the worst that could happen?
