Sogefi, the automotive components company of the CIR Group, is the original equipment manufacturer (OE) of the oil filter fitting the FCA Group new "FireFly" petrol engine family.
Recently the automotive group launched the new "FireFly" engines on various models, starting with the new FIAT 500X and the Jeep Renegade.
These engines made of aluminium (instead of cast iron, like the previous ones) are lighter, more eco-friendly, and compliant with the 6/D-Temp regulation in force from September 2019.

Moreover, thanks to Sogefi's exclusive Chevron pleating technology, the filter offers an extraordinary capacity to retain dust in a compact space.
The oil filter is available in the Aftermarket brands, requesting the following codes: Purflux LS1079, FRAM® PH12479 and CoopersFiaam FT6847.
The Sogefi product range offers added value to all customers in terms of quality, service and customer support.
